yes, there's a way.

My Computer --> Properties --> Advanced --> User Profiles --> Settings

there can be problems when the same user usually logs from both windows xp 
and w2k workstation.

samba understands %a macros (which can be put in profile path), however I 
noticed that windows xp sometimes is recognized as w2k.

also, we were running mixed environment of w2k and xp workstation
where profiles were shared between w2k and xp. it was ok until we
started to use pptp/vpn, those things are different in registry, so
profiles got broken in a while.
