Profile issue

We have a manager who has an IBM T42 with Windows XP Pro and they have had it for quite awhile and they usually bring it home every night and work on projects.  Lately when they come back in and boot-up on the network, they are getting Event ID's 1509, 1515 and 1511 which are basically saying that the roaming profile could not be located and it gives a local profile.  The user reboots or does Last Known Good Config and the roaming profile loads.  There are no errors on the server (Windows 2003 server) and the user never has any other network connection issues.  Any assistance offered would be greatly appreciated.

Try setting the following policy.  This may cause slow bootups when off network though.
