Roaming profiles not being updated

Unfortunately it doesn't work in NT because of permission problems -- the
standard 'users' group doesn't have permission to change the system time,
so putting net time /set /yes in the logon batch file just generates a
'permission denied' message.  (I leave it there anyway so the time gets
set whenever an administrator logs in.)  If anybody has advice on how to
grant this privilege to users *without* editing 100 registries by hand,
I'd be interested.
