Nope. You only need a Vista machine to manage the GP settings, but everything else you have is fine.

My domain is primarily comprised of XP SP2 and dc's are Server 2003.

Will require you to push the client side extension installer out to your clients beforehand, however.

My login scripts basically just create URL shortcuts on the desktop and map users to specific drives. I was wondering if it's completely necessary for me to continue using vb scripts or if it's possible for me to completely do away with them and replace them for GPOs. I was thinking I could establish all the shortcuts as IE bookmarks through IE Maintenance options and then have a single vb script that deletes existing desktop URLs and copies whatever is in the Favorites of the current user to the desktop. Does this sound like its possible? Is it possible to setup mapped drives through GPO?
