    What do you mean? The shortcuts and folders on your local desktop?
    In a network environment, this can be done by using roaming profiles. This way, you also have your My Documents folder, Outlook Express e-mail, etc.

    If you are logging on with a different id then this will not work.  I am assuming that you are using an administrator id when you logon to a server that is different then the id you logon to your workstation with.

    If you connect to an XP or windows 2003 machine you can go into options in the remote desktop login window, go to the local resources tab and check disk drives.

    You cannot do this with remote desktop, if you want the screen to be visible on both on your machine and on the host you will need to use remote assistance or a third party tool like VNC
