WinXP Pro not executing login script

I am running Fedora core 4 as a PDC for a Windows network at home. I have shares set up and users defined and all my computers can login to the domain. My problem comes when I login from a system running Windows XP Pro. These computers will not execute the login script when I log in. My systems that run Win98 work fine. Can anyone give me any suggestions on how to get WinXP to execute the login script from the domain controller?

Probably the wrong website to be asking this question!

Are you running XP Pro SP2? Make sure that the script enjoys system privileges and firewall permissions or XP won't let it run and/or communicate. It may work when you run it manually as it inherits your permissions if you are logged in as an admin.
