I am not sure from Bernd's email what he is trying to accomplish, but 
there are things to consider if you are trying to do roaming profiles. 
With the volume of data often stored in today's profile, it is 
non-trivial to enable this option and I do not recommend doing so for 
the average user. There are other ways to accomplish some of the 
benefits of profiles without the mess.

The first thing is to decide what you want to accomplish and then find 
the solution that best fits those needs.
