Problem using Outlook on clients after migrating from 2003 Enterprise to 2003 SBS

I have recently migrated a 2003 Enterprise  server to a 2003 SBS (for legal reasons) and I am having some annoying problems.
I decided to recreate active directory because there were only about 15 users on the system that I wanted to keep.  Each of the users was using roaming profiles so I copied their profiles and shared them on the new server, then I made sure all their accounts point to their profiles - this works fine.  After some buggy roaming profile problems I got everyone's account working well, but I tried to open Outlook on their system and it said "Could not start Microsoft Office Outlook" and closed - this happened on every member of the default group 'users'.  I figured it was a permissions problem so I gave full control to the profiles directory for everyone and id didn't help, so I added them all to the domain admins group and it didn't help, so I made domain admins their default group - boom - works great.

What do you think is wrong with my setup here?  I am a Linux Guru and this 2003 SBS is making me mad!

Thanks in advance!
