best practices for 2k3 terminal server and home directories?

I have setup a windows 2003 terminal server and have installed all of the apps i want share on it.  I also have a file server setup with windows 2k3.  I want to enable terminal users to have roaming profiles and home directories.  Should i also think i should setup regular roaming profiles and home diretories as well so when they are not using the terminal session they have a regular home directory and profile.  

I want to store the users terminal home directory and profile on the server termserv1 and their regular home directories and prfiles on fileserv1.  

how should i configure the shares on the server for this and what should i put in their user properties to apply this?  

thanks for all your help.
BTW, i have created a new OU for the user of the terminal server and have begun to edit the applicable group policy for restrictions.

The easiest thing to do is creat an OU in Active directory for the terminal server and link a group policy object that redirects the folders. Then create another policy that redirects to fileserv1 and link it to your computers OU
In Group Policy it is under Users, Windows settings, folder redirection

You do use the user settings but you link the GPO to the terminal server OU.
User policy applied to a server, when the user logs on to that server they will receive that server's policy. likewise if you create a different GPO and link it to a computers OU they will receive that user policy when logged into that computer
