If you set a logon script for a user in the user's properties 
(scriptPath attribute), then you store it on the netlogon share.

When using GPOs for login scripts, the files are stored in a 
subdirectory of the GPO. For example, for a per-user logon script GPO:

The script name you enter in the Group Policy Editor, is just 
"login.bat" or you can simply select it after clicking the "Browse" button.

Additionally, something you should pay attention to when running Win8:
I don't know if the 5-min delay is also default on other versions. 
Please let me know if you use a different version.

By the way, for mapping drives, you can also use the GPO "Drive Maps" 
feature. This was some advantages, such as "use first available drive 
letter", etc.
