[Samba] Questions on Roaming Profiles

Well, I have a couple of questions regarding roaming profiles. I have been
assigned the task of setting up a Samba PDC on our network. Lately, I have
been doing a lot of research and reading to find out the best way I setup
my system. I have a couple of questions I wanted to ask here, in hopes of
getting some feedback.
First, some details:
The server will be Red Hat 8.0 with Samba 2.2.7. All of our clients on our
intranet are running Windows 2000.
Now, I have considered implementing Roaming Profiles (upper management
likes the idea). Let me start asking some questions:
1) Right now, our network is a workgroup. All of our users have their own
computers with their personal desktop settings. (Icons, favorites, etc.)
What I was curious is, if I update one of our clients computers and add
them to the Domain/PDC, will their current local profile, which contains
their desktop settings, be copied over to the PDC? If not, is there a way
to make sure that when I do add a machine and user to the domain, their
settings will be copied to the PDC? Thus, if they log onto a different
machine, they will retain their desktop settings?
That is about it actually. If I think of more, I will repost.
I appreciate everyones help and input.
