I am also posting this in Windows XP.  

I am setting up a network where I want specific settings on each of the workstations.  I make about ten changes to the desktop, start menu, and some system properties settings.  I would like to keep these changes for each user and some change for each user that logs in.  I do not want mandatory profiles becasue I would like each user to be able to change this if they wish.  However I do want each user to have the same settings for each pc they login to.  I am going to redirect some stuff but here is the main question.  Can I create an account call it temp and configure everything and copy all files and folders from this profile into the all users folder for each pc.  Would this work?  If not what would be better?  Would it help to do this on the server?   Thanks for your help.

Yes you need to do this on the server (at Domain level)
I would let a combination of Group Policies and a good Login script do this.
You can use Group policy to lock down all PC's to the same standard. Then you could let the login script for instance build up a start menu etc. depending on user name or group membership.
