Hi kinalas,
In exactly the same way that they do now. Logging into the domain does not necessarily mean that their workspace is any different, just that access permissions are cntrolled centrally.

Hi kinalas,
Alan is correct! the files will still be there, what you will find is there local coount will be under "documents and settings" in the USERNAME folder where as their Domain account will look like USERNAME.000 you can either copy the files over or give the users permission to their old documents and settings folder
