Your best bet might be a terminal services solution. That would give you
everything you want with the added benefit of keeping the user's exact
session state.

Subject: [gptalk] Setting up roaming data, Group Policy and Active
Directory, Server 2003 and Wind xp, IE 7, Office 2007

I am trying to setup a mix between roaming profiles and folder
redirection.  I currently have the desktop, application data, and my
docs all redirected to seperate folders for each user under a root dir
on the server.

I want it so that if a user forgets to log off, they can still log into
another computer, or the terminal server, and have their same internet
explorer, outlook and other program interfaces (bookmarks and saved
passwords transfer, pop3 email accounts, ect.)

I though of roaming profiles, which would do this, but i don't want the
start menu to roam, since each computer has different software
installed, in addition to the basic office and internet exploroer.

I downloaded the office 2007 adm files, and told it to place the pst and
ost files in the shared application data folder rather than the local
one, but that setting doesn't seem to work.

I have tried the simulation thing in the manager, but no matter how many
times i restart the server and run gpupdate and gpupdate /force on both
the server and the computers, and restart them,  i never can seem to get
all of the settings to work.

How can i do this best, meeting as many criteria as possible.

If there is anyone who knows of a company that does consulting for
something like this, that would be great too.
