OK, lets go tru your question again.
Yo want to have a profile for to diferent machines.
One for lab and one for office?
Is the same user going to be loging in on both machines?
If that is so then I sugest you don,t use profiles but use system policy.
To do that you realy need poledit program from win NT 4 SERVER! cd-rom.
If I am not right, Can you explain to me the exact situation and why you
need multiple profiles for diferent users.
I also know that wehen you are using roaming profiles on diferent machines
you get some msg's like there is no program found for shourtcut's. That kind
You have to tell me exectly why you want this?
