Hi there,

I have a terminal here with Windows XP and a laptop (also with XP). I wan't the contents on each to be identical eg. My Documents, application settings etc.
I have full access to a Windows 2003 server. Should I create a roaming profile so that both my terminal and laptop would synchronise (as well as keeping a backup) to the server? I'm just wondering what the best way to go about it would be. Thanks
