That's what I was afraid of.... I guess they'll just have to make sure 
they know how to turn their profiles by hand, otherwise make the profile 
small enough to be sane or deal with the hour long logon.  Some people 
just can't realize that an email client isn't a decent file storage medium.

On a seperate thought, would anyone like to comment on if the 'terminal 
server profile path'  parameter is being developed and if so, how far 
along it is?
