Well, Outlook and basic IE settings are automatic with Small Business Server Networks... just by logging in to another workstation.  You should not be using Firefox within a Small Business Network because it's not managed through Group Policy.  Favorites are not automatically provided, but they can be handled in a couple of ways.  The method I like best is for users to create their own Companyweb view (SharePoint) with their own favorites list.   This is a great opportunity for them to start using SharePoint and the advantage of storing favorites in SharePoint is that they are then accessible remotely through Remote Web Workplace > View My Company's Internal Web Site.

You can easily add links to SharePoint with SharePointFav:  http://steve.wedevelop.net/archives/000243.html

Also, My Documents would be automatic if you run the Configure My Documents Folder Redirection wizard from the Server Management Console.
