How to copy a user's Start Menu, Desktop, and application settings to a new user?

In Windows Server 2003, I want to set up a lot of new users to be exactly the same as one that I've just created.
Where are the default (?) Desktop and Start Menu settings located?  What about the Internet Explorer Home Page, and Word and Excel default settings?
I don't know if it's relevant ... the users may log in from either a Vista or an XP workstation.
Thanks

I hope you are familiar with GPO? You can setup policies that can affect all users or certain group of users
