for your information.
the profile is NOT ONLY NTUSER.DAT
its the complete C:\Documents and Settings\<username> enviroment
Profiles uses the TimeStamp of NTUSER.DAT.
if time is too much different roaming profiles doesnt work.
Profiles can be shares with NT4x - W2k - WXP
! AND W98 + W95, but because of changes in directories and
the uses of other variables W98 - W95 mixing with WNT and higher
is not recommended.
it's possible, but for that create a profile enviroment for W9x only.
