sounds like you didn't copy the user's NTUSER.DAT.  how did you copy the 
profile?  drag and drop from c:\documents and settings\username to 
\\server\profiles\username or did you go to my computer properties, 
advanced, users, and change their profile to roaming and copy their 
profile with the copy button there to \\servers\profiles\username?
