Hi Neal,
I have always used roaming profiles, 
so I've never tried to turn it
off. However, If your users are 
saving their files to either the
My Documents folder or on to their 
Desktop, then they are by default
saving to their own profile, thus 
increasing its size, thus increasing
the logon time.
Perhaps you could convince your users
to save somewhere better?

Hope this helps.
