Need to give all users same local profile

I have workstations running Windows 2000 Professional logging into a Windows NT4 server.  I can have a user log into the network from the work station, install necessary printers, and set up terminal server client.  The problem occurs when another user logs into the same workstation.  No printers exist and I have to go through the entire exercise all over again for that user.  Is there anyway I can have a workstation set up properly for one user and then make that local profile automatically available to all users who log into that system thereafter?

PS. I would like to be able to do the same thing with Windows NT workstations.

Once the machine is setup, copy the user profile to the Default user profile ( in the profiles dir under winnt).
Then the next user NEW  will have the same setup.

Other option is to use roaming profiles !

I hope this helps !
