Moving a user from a pc to a winterm, keeping all there icons, files, etc. intact

Hello, I am trying to move the receptionist from a regular PC to a winterm, to utilize less space. She has several icons on her desktop and personal folders in her c drive. How can I copy all of her prefrences through the server so that when she logs onto the terminal server through her new winterm instead of her PC - she can still have everything in her desktop like in her PC? We are running in a windows 2003 server (standard). & she will be logging onto the terminal server through a winterm.
Thank you.

in ad users and computers go to the user properties, on the terminal server profile tab furnish the path of the shared folder \\servername\share.
copy the existing user profile from the pc to this location. check permissions and ownership.
