Prevent roaming profiles from being cached locally in Group Policy

Is there a way in Group Policy to make it so roaming profiles are not cached locally.  I want the profiles stored on my active directory server, and when the user logs in, the profile is downloaded from the server.

    The profile is always copied locally - you can opt to delete the local copy on logout - but it won't save any time - indeed it will take longer.

    I want it so that the profile is totally stored on the network and then the whole thing is downloaded to the local user when he/she logs in.  Then deleted from the local machine and stored on the server when that user logs off.
