Hi all.

I need a script I think to do this!  
We rolled out a Samba server, and used roaming profiles.  Big mistake.  So, now I want to undo roaming profiles, but have people's stuff they saved (under My Documents) transferred to their home dir.  I have about 400 accounts.  So something like this:

cp /opt/profiles/{username}/My Documents/* /home/{username}

so that way /op/profiles/JOhn1/My Documents/* would copy to /home/John1 and John2 would copy to /home/John2 etc etc ( the usernames are not sequential).

Any help would be cool!
