Group Policy and Laptops

I have a desktop user who is going to start working on both her desktop PC and her Laptop....

I currently have group policy setup to set where her XP Start Menu is located. When she is logged on to her networked desktop PC she gets her profile and Start Menu. When I log on to her networked laptop she has her profile and Start Menu....

I've set her profile on the laptop to Local and also copied in the Start Menu that she uses, however when I disconnect the network cable her Start Menu disappears...

I know a way to fix this would be to remove the GP Start Menu and copy her Start Menu into her profile but the problem is I’d need to do this with all the users in the OU. I know this must work because its setup correctly for another user... Does anyone have any ideas what silly thing I’m doing wrong??

Thanks in advance.

Is the Start menu located on a network share?
If it is use the the Offline Files feature to create a cached copy on the laptop.

hope this helps
