Problems joining a domain afterwards?

We have recently changed to a sbs2003 server and use the //servername/connectcomputer from each workstation. When I logon for the first time to create the user profile as we use roaming profiles and try to use office it searches for the cd and cannot find it, despite it being in the cd drive, it doesn't even ask for an alternative source. I knwo this may be linked to administritive rights, but I cannot have all users having this right? How do I get round it?

Using roaming profiles on an SBS requires configuring a root in the Distributed File System (DFS).  But I think your problem is happening before that... because you don't need to have the Office CD in the drive... you should add your users and computers per the prescribed method and THEN create roaming profiles if necessary.

See this for an overview of how to add correctly:  http://sbsurl.com/add

Then thiis for the DFS and Roaming Profiles:  http://sbsurl.com/postinstall
