mapping home drive

Has anyone else had problems mapping the home drive through active directory in Windows7 ? we are running windows server 2003 for our domain controllers. This works flawlessly in windows xp stations, but i can't get it to work on windows 7 stations. I'm hoping i don't have to map the home drive through the login scripts.

You have to install files to the DC from the 7 box good article explains a bit: Windows 7 clients on 2003 domain / group policy btw, In my opinion... 7 is not ready for a domain environment. You're in for a lot of troubles.
