User Account Creation

I installed NT Server on my desktop machine and I now run it as a domain server.  People's base account are now kept on the domain.  A few people have accidentally logged into their systems using the local domain name and inadvertantly created two users of the same name.  This  creates a
user and user.000 profile.  When I remove the new local user, the bogus profile is left behind.

1- What is the proper way to create domain IDs?  My current theory is that I create them with a temp. password on the domain machine, I give it a must change indication, and let them log into their machine and set a real pasword there.  I tell them to not ever use the local domain on their machine.

2 - How can I get rid of the bogus user.000 things?

1) sounds fair...
2) Unfortunately, you can't assume that the .000 profile is not used. In a 1200+ NTWS installation, we often having problems with users profiles that are suddenly gone and instead a new .000 or .001 or ... is assigned to the user.
To remove it, use RD %systemroot%\profiles\%username%.000 in the loginscript...

You put..

 RD %systemroot%\profiles\%username%.000 in the loginscript

because the .000 file is not likely to be in use yet - correct?
