Win 9x client logon scripts win 2k serv

By Squirbel ·
I have Windows 2000 servers with active directory installed. I have windows 95, windows 98SE, and windows XP Pro workstations. A user can log in on the XP workstation, the security policy is applied, the user is authenticated, the logon script runs and all is right with the world. However same user logs into 98SE station and authenticates but no log on script. The logon script is a .bat file (very simple) and if run after logon works fine, maps drives to servers, connect to resources, etc no problem. All systems are on same subnet and can see each other through network neighbourhood / network places and "talk" to each other quite happily. So why do my logon scripts not run on Win 98SE workstations?????

How are the login scripts applied? Group Policy?
If group policy, Windows 9x/NT PCs do not work with group policy. You have to apply the login script either:
a) via the Profile tab of the user in question (the script has to be in \\domain\netlogon directory.)
b) Add a shortcut to script in the Startup folder in the Startmenu on the machine itself.
