That is refering to locally cached profiles, where a computer is user by a
large number of people the local cache for each eats up a very significent
amount of disk space. Don't confuse it with the 'main' profile that NT
stores on the server (or whereever you send it). To make it clearer, NT
likes to store two copies, one locally and one on the server. next time you
start up, it uses the server copy if available unless the local copy is
more recent.

Make a policy that alters the registery entry that you already know about.
Got to have policies working of course.
