Thanks for the input. Before I received this reply I did a little 
further testing and do believe I got it working right. I ended up having 
to remove the machine from the domain, remove the local copy of the 
users profile on the machine, readd the machine to the domain, and have 
the user re-login to pull his profile across. I had to reboot between 
each step just to make sure settings stuck. He was able to successfully 
login and pull his profile from the new machine last night and we will 
see how it does today. Thanks again for the assistance.
