For Active Directory users, I need to be able to alter the user settings for the same user ID from one computer to the next.  On one computer they need one set of user settings in the GPO, while on another I need a different set of user settings.  Is this possible?  Is there something I am overlooking?

what you are looking for is group policy "loopback", please google.

But if it's only ONE user, local profile (or terminal profile if using TS) is sufficient for this purpose.

Strongline, I'll look at this now.  It is for several users actually.  They all need the same level of access on the box.

there are plently articles about loopback. 231287 might be the most basic one. Loopback is very common for Terminal Servers or public kiosks.
