Roaming Profiles

Win95 and WinNT profiles are not compatable. To accomplish "free seating"
in the NT side of the house, all you need to is set the user profile using
User Manager for each user who needs a roaming profile making sure you use
the UNC and not a drive mapping. IE, use:

\\server\userid$\profile   NOT...


WHERE H: is defined as \\server\userid$, the user's home directory.

Win95 profiles - well, Win95 in general - is not my specialty. Sorry!
