How do I get the Win95 workstation to download a user profile from a NT 3.51 server so that users can log on from any 95 box and retain their desktop settings etc?

user profiles are created with the profile editor on the server.Log in to the server as administrator, and go to the user profile editor in the administrative tools group.  Use the browse button -it shows up as 3 dots (...) - to assign the profile to a user.  You  can create personal profiles (.usr) which users can modify to suit their taste, or you can create mandatory profiles (.man)  which will override the users choices upon login (good for restricting users who like to "play" with their desktops).  Mandatory profiles can be assigned to groups as well as individual users.
