You can set it up once as is needed, and then make that part - read- only, so that every time they login, they receive the mandatory profile , without any changes.

and:

excluding folders from roaming profiles.
In Windows 2000, the default value of ExcludeProfileDirs at
  HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon is Local
  Settings;Temporary Internet Files;History;Temp;Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook.

  The Exclude directories in roaming profile Group Policy at User Configuration\Administrative
  Templates\System\Logon/Logoff lets you add to the list of folders which are excluded from your roaming profile.
  The additional folders that you configure are stored in the ExcludeProfileDirs value name, as a string variable
  (REG_SZ), at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\System.

  NOTE: You could reduce the number of Days to keep pages in history on the General tab of Internet Options,
  and check the Empty temporary Internet Files when browser is closed box on the Advanced tab.
3712 ; Excluded profile folders are being uploaded to your Windows 2000 profile?

  Even though you have excluded some directories from your profile (tips 3868 and 3543), these excluded folders are
  uploaded to your profile when you log off?

  When Windows 2000 retrieves the ExcludeProfileDirs value, it writes the data to Ntuser.ini. If the data exceeds 260
  characters, a buffer overflow occurs and the entire string is considered to be NULL.

  To resolve the issue, limit the total length of the exclusion list to 260 characters.

496 ; You MUST disable the cache option for Offline Files on a roaming profile share?

  If you do not disable the cache option for Offline Files on a user profile share, the profile will become unstable, as
  both the Offline Files and roaming profile attempt to synchronize the files in the profile.

  The cache option is SMB share based. If you enable the cache option on a share, and roaming profiles are below that
  share, Offline Files caches files in the profile.

  NOTE: Whenever possible, store roaming profiles and offline-enabled shares on different servers.

  To resolve the problem:

  Create a separate share for user profiles and disable the cache option on the new share by opening a CMD prompt and
  typing:

  net share \\Server\Sharename /cache:no

  You can use Windows Explorer to disable the cache by right-clicking the shared folder and press Properties. On the
  Sharing tab, press the Caching button and clear the Allow caching of files in this folder box.

I hope this helps !
