As a final option, you could also use Group Policy Preferences to create
shortcuts based on AD group memberships using the "*Item-level targeting*"
option. The advantage of this over the Redirect/NTFS lockdown method is
that users aren't restricted from saving other stuff to the Desktop, should
you want to allow this.
