How do I get multiple users to use the same profile?

I have a template user profile that I would like to have multiple users use.  In particular, this is a locked down profile that only has the ability to run one thing.  I have 99% of it configured through AD but want everyone to use the same shortcuts without having to manually copy to profile to each new user that I add.

Is this possible?

profiles can't be locked down but user accounts can.

do you want multiple users to use one AD account, OR do you want multiple users to use the same "documents and settings" profile on your workstations.

if you want to copy a user account you can just rightclick it in ADUC and choose copy and it will create a new user account with the same security as the orignal one.

if you want mulitple users to use the same profile you can use tweakUI to point all users to the same profile... the setting is hard to find in tweakui, it is in the "special" section somewhere depending on your version.
