My PDC is named Jupiter, and it's running 2.0beta4.
I have a default profile as:

  \\jupiter\netlogon\Default User

And this seems to get copied to the local NT client's machine as

   %SYSTEMROOT%\Profiles\Default User (Network)

And, while I have not fully confirmed this, I have seen this get used as the default profile for people logging into the domain for the first time.  Why it copies it to the local client I have no idea, and if the local copy gets updated (if it ever needs to be) when I change the version in netlogon, I don't know.  Anyone else know anything about this?
