Hi Jeff,

Could you email this document to me please.

I am setting up multiple XP Pro PCs and Laptops as part of a Server 2003
domain with use of SharePoint Services and SQL Server. I believe I may need
to use Roaming Profiles once the network infrastructure is installed. In the
interim I want to install 'general' software apps on the PC workstations and
Laptops in standalone mode. I also want to keep User Data away from System
Data on C: drive hence need to relocate all user profiles to D: drive.

By your posts your insight and document may be useful to me!

Cheers,
