I am new to the world of Windows as a server Operating system, I finally got the school distict to crawl out from under the Novell beast.  Well I have about 30 machines all running windows XP Pro with SP 2 so they work with the domain fine but I did not stumble accross the way to to do the "my documents" as the server side storage for users.  I know this cant be that complex but I am in the dark here. Eplanation, Location, or an URL to get me on mky way would be much appreciated, Thanks.

    take special note of folder redirection, it is much more effecient than roaming profiles as a whole
