I know you already got a very good response to this (about modifying the
registry to point profiles to a server somewhere). You may also want to
look at http://www.dtcc.edu/cs/admin/nt/notes/netscape.html for my notes on
the same topic. I go a step further and create a template account,
subscribed user to some default groups, and then copied the entire user
directory to the server. When user's log in, the login script looks for a
directory named netscape, and if it doesn't exist, copies the template data
over, modifies prefs.js with the user's personal information, then starts
A crude perl script for doing some of this is on the above page...
