This might be tough.  Probably the quickest way would be to...

Let the user logon to the new server so it creates the profile
Have the user logoff
Then replace the users profile in c:\documents and settings with the one you had backed up for that person.
You'll have to do this with each user.

If you had the profilelist backed up from the registry as well, it would be a little easier.

Anyhow, give that a shot.

By default Administrators should have full control of the users folder, but here we go.

Take ownership as you mentioned.  ensure you select the "Replace owner on subcontainers and objects".
Once that is complete grant the following permission at the users folder:
Administrators: Full control
System: Full Control
The user: Full Control

this should get you in.

Thanks , thats works , but now i have this messege in the client side when i log the user :

Your roaming profile is not available. You are logged on with the locally stored profile. Changes to the profile will not be copied to the server. Possible causes of this error include network problems or insufficient security rights. If this problem persists, contact your network administrator.
