What would be the best practice to accomplish this? I can find plenty of writeups on how to do the opposite. Also we will be doing some extra folder redirection. Currently we only redirect their my documents to the server. On the new system we plan to redirect AppData and Desktop also. Is there a good easy way to automate this while still retaining their existing information?

You should take a look at the Windows user profile manager. Using
WindowsXP you can follow these steps:
Right click on My Computer
Select Properties
"Settings"-Button in User Profiles
