Mapped Drive Letter to Win2K server

By rteale ·
I have a few Win98 clients that are mapping to their home directory through the Windows 2000 server login script:
net use h: /home
This maps fine. However, periodically during the day, they have great difficulty getting to their home directory using the drive letter (either in explorer or using command prompt). However, if the UNC path is entered, connection is immediate. Usually rebooting takes care of the problem for awhile.
Any clues what I can do?

Use the full UNC in the logon script.
net use \\server\share

Yes, good idea. However, Windows 95/98 clients don't recognize the use of \\servername\%username% in the script and since I don't want to create an individual script for each user, this won't work in my situation.
I am looking into KixStart, from what I've read, this might help.
