Terminal Server profile

If two people login to a Win 2003 terminal server using the same login id (say johnb), they end up using a common c:\documents and settings\johnb profile.   So any change person A makes, such as add icon to the desktop, redirected printers, setting a default printer etc it immediately impacts user B.  Anyone aware of a method to force different profiles for each session, even though the same login / username is used.

sure... setup a w2k3 ts farm... setup the session directory to point to different boxes when the same user logs on.

OR USE DIFFERENT LOGONS FOR DIFFERNET USERS (yes I was screaming ;)

if you want to generally prevent changes of the user-profile use mandatory profiles.
otherwise, use different users.
