HELP! logon scripts & screen resolution!

By adza ·
I help run a network that used NT 4 server and it has nt workstation, windows 95 and 98 pc's that log in as well. The problem is that certain users need to have their screen resolution at 1024 X 768 to run a program. But the other users need 800 x 600 (which is the most common one. So i need to create a logon script or a policy? to automaticly change the resolution to 1024 x 768 when certain users log in!! I do have a basic knowledge of NT. Any help would be fantastic!!

HELP! logon scripts & screen resolution!

You can use Poledit to create policies for your users.
In the policy you can specify screen resolutions.
You will need to create two policies:
ntconfig.pol for the NTWorkstations and
config.pol for your Win9x systems.
These need to be saved tothe Netlogon share on all domain controllers (either through replication server, or manually placed there). If you have only the one server then just need it on that one. The Netlogon share is actually the %systemroot%\winnt\system32\repl\import\scripts directory. (I am pulling from memory the directory location, so if its not exactly right, I'm sorry)
