Problem Connecting Users TO SBS 2003

I have just installed a new SBS 2003 server. We have about 14 PC's that will connect to the server.
I tried to create one user and connect that user to the server. The users computer is running WinXP Pro and is using the "administrator" account (it was not setup with a separate user name when it was new).

When I run "connectcomputer" at the workstation I am not able to migrate the administrator profile. I get a message about the folder being marked "do not share" and that I should uncheck that under sharing. I have looked at all the folders under documents and settings (administrator, default user and all users, and their subfolders) and none of them are marked "do not share".

How can I connect this computer with the users new name and still maintain their previous settings, favorites, desktop etc?
