You might wanna check your Policies via gpedit.msc if using WinXP Pro to check 
network-wide Group Policies or your Control Panel to check your Local Policies.
Also, read this Microsoft Knowledge Base Article - 307800:

How To Assign a Mandatory User Profile in Windows XP

The following 3-page article will give you a thorough understanding of how user

Having a problem with mandatory profiles. I want 30 accounts to utilize the 
same Mandatory profile located on a centralized server. We are trying this 
on Windows XP desktops. There are certain settings that are not being 
applied from the mandatory profile (background, taskbar settings, start 
menu settings).

The ntuser file is named ntuser.man and the group that has all 30 accounts 
as members, has full control to the profile sharepoint.

If I change the profile back to roaming, it works for all 30 accounts.

Any thoughts?
