folder redirection-roaming profiles

Have 2003 server AD network. Main office( all servers) 100 users, Branch offices(no servers) 30 users. All connected via DSL VPN (1Mb T1). All users(XP). Planning Roaming profiles and Folder Redirection on My Documents folder for all users. It seems that with folder redirection, along with My Documents,  you can also redirect Application Data, Desktop, and Start Menu as well. Question: Is it a good idea to redirect all these folders with roaming profile in place, keeping in mind the VPN. Thx.

redirection uses offline file syncronisation. for things like my documents
roaming profiles leaves a copy of your profile on the server and then loads it up at log on and  saves it back at logoff.

i used roaming profiles for 80 users it worked fine, im just about to use it for 500 users, folder redirection can be usefull to control users desktops etc, personally i dont like it.
