In a windows network (windows 2000file server windows/ server 2003 domain controllers) is their a way to have roaming profiles.  In other words can my users "float".  right now I have their outlook express installed on their machine. If they have a problem and have to log into another workstation termpararily the only application available to them is the mail application that is on the server.
It would be great if my users could log onto any workstation and have the applications they use on a daily basis available.
Thank you
-John

Thats another issue.  Roaming profiles will only give you there desktop, docs, favorates, that kind of thing.  In order to get applications to follow them is to assign applications pakcages to them thru group policy.  This is alot of work because you have to create a install package for each application.  You would also have to wait the time it takes to install these apps during the first login process.
