hi, what is this with copy etc, place you bat file ( must be written in 
dos editor ) in a netlogon share on samba , make it readable and it will 
executed, for sure you can create the scipt on the fly with perl as 
prexec to that share ( example in the samba source ) but after that ( if 
you have the right parameter in smb.conf the script will be executed by 
the win client automaticly ....no need for net use and copy it to the 
client ,after all some win versions need diffrent syntax with bat files 
honor them.
i think your special failure depend on user rights on the win machine , 
xp as multiuser system want to have admin rights to execute your bat , 
check your event log
