I can not get the logon script to run for users with longer than 8
characters on win98/me clients.  I get an error when they logon  Access
denied  Y: access denied jvand~H8.bat.  (real file name is jvanderweide.bat)
The permissions are rw for both owner and group in the netlogon share.

Any suggestions to fix this?  Other than shorten the username :).
