I have about 10 users that use e-mail that is not on my exchange server.  They user POP & SMTP.  I need they to have roaming profiles because they use multiple workstations.  How can I make thier outlook config follow them too?

If you are using roaming profiles then the Outlook configuration should follow them as well. That is part of the point of roaming profiles.

If it isn't, then you need to investigate why the roaming profile isn't moving that information across as well.

Otherwise trying to get settings for a pop3/SMTP connection to configuration automatically is quite difficult. The users would still need to add in their username and password information manually. If all accounts were on Exchange then you wouldn't have the problem - automatic configuration of Exchange accounts is very easy.
