Create an NTConfig.POL file in the root of your netlogon share using the 
POLEDIT.EXE shipped with WinNT4.0 and Win2000Server (not shure about 
Win20003Server) and any service pack of them, just unpack the 
servicepack with servicepacksexename /x and you will find the file.
Use the ADM files next to it, plus the attached one (made by Andrew 
Bartlett) and you can redirect lots of folders, to shares, or subdirs of 

Good Luck!
