Too right it slows it down, I have an alternative to the other posts.
Disable roaming profiles. To do this on XP pro run gpedit.msc ...then

enable : Computer Configuration/Administrative Templates/System/User
Profiles/Only allow local user profiles.

there is another setting of interest as well:  
Prevent roaming profiles uploaded to server........or similar.

Maybe there is a way to do this enmass....via a logon script?
hope this helps
