Hi zadams,

you are much better using the folder redirection utility rather than roaming profiles, saves you a lot load on the network and profile buildup

check out the profile redirection

as far as standardisationg goes, you can pretty much standardies a desktop via group policy

What name did you use? Did you try something as simple as 'abc'?
What kind of network connection are you trying to create? Wireless or Internet via modem?
zadamsAuthor Commented:
I tried many names - long and short. Network connection is internet via ISDN modem.
CyberGhostCommented:
Make sure you have the the required driver installed for your ISDN modem.
Please, post the extact message as it appears when the error occures. I will try to google a bit on that message for you.

Message:
"Connection name "xxxxxxxx" is not a valid name. The entry name must contain at least one character that is not a space and cannot begin with a period. Choose a different name."
CyberGhostCommented:
I tried to google for your error message and found nothing useful.
So let me ask you few additional questions.

1. is your Windows 2000 Professional up to date? do you have all service packs patches and updates installed?
2. use an antivirus application to check if there isn't a virus (NOD32 trial might be the best and fastest choice)
3. if you used that computer for Internet before, install and run spyware removal tools (Ad-Aware and simmilar) to check for any spyware
4. do you have any other network (dial-up) connection installed on that computer?
