  • Windows XP Default Profile From Server

    I'm in the planning stages of a new Windows 2003 AD - replacing the existing Linux based NT-4 like setup. I want to do two things:

    1). As much as possible retain the existing user profile data (things like Internet Favorites, My Documents...) the data not the settings.

    2). Blend the above with a new default profile that would be pulled down from a server during the first login to the new domain.

    I'm almost certain that No. 1 and No. 2 are mutually exclusive, but I really need to try to get this working.

    I don't want any of this to be mandatory. After the first login, the user is free to make as many desktop changes as they wish.

    Can anyone give me a snowballs chance here?
