I have had XP machines running with Desktop and Start Menu redirection for a 
long time and everything works beautifully.  We have just added 20 or so Vista 
machines and Desktop redirection works fine but the Start Menu does not work at 
all.  All that happens is an empty "Programs" menu.  Getting two 502 events on 
the Vista boxes dealing with the Programs folder and the Startup folder.  
Cannot create folder "some folder" Access is denied.  Permissions on the folder 
on the server for the specific group is Read & Execute, List Folder Contents, 
and Read.  The user's are using a Mandatory Roaming Profile also.  Running on a 
2003 Native domain and all policies have been created from a XP box.  I am 
hoping to be able to fix this without making the policies from a Vista box, if 
at all possible.
