    I am running Win2K Server with Win98 and Win2kPro Clients. The logon script that I am running works fine on the Win2kPro clients. The Win98 clients will not run one net use command.
    The line in the script reads :
    "net use x: \\servername\staff\%username%"
    For some reason the 98 clients will not map to there home directory. I have assigned each user folder with a share for the user associated with the share and nothing changed. I get an error message when I try and run the net use command manually, it reads:
    "Error 50: You attemted an operation that cannot be performed from your computer or that is not supported on the specified server. Make sure you ar eusing the correct server for the command or task you want to perform. In the problem persists, contact your network admin." ( I am the admin)
    I know the server name is correct. Any ideas????

    You can't run the %username% or any other variables on Win9x. You need some other scripting agent like Kixtart.
