by default, windows does not copy the Local Settings directory in the 
profile to the roaming profile server.  Options are to edit ntuser.ini 
for each user and take out the Local Settings directory, or read pages 
210-212 of samba 3 by example.pdf on how to hack the registry for each 
user to redirect .PST files.
