You're doing better than I am. I've never managed to get a client 
machine to successfully join a domain across my VPN.

I always seems to time out. I seem to remember from using NT4 that 
Windows will decide to use the local profile when it decides that the 
network link is unacceptably slow. How you modify this behaviour I never 
had occasion to find out (see first paragraph).
