We are a global company who are applying some group policies to our remote sites.  One of our group policies is to redirect the remote user 'My Documents' folder.  Unfortunately, the remote sites all have regionally installed versions of WinXP and therefore do not have 'My Documents', for example: 'documenti' for Italy.  Is there an environment variable which takes the 'My Documents' folder in whatever language and allows us to redirect it??  Is there any other best method to apply our folder redirection for these multiple language WinXP installations??

"Roaming users should not use Folder Redirection with MUI. If they do, they might create multiple language versions of My Documents and other per-user folders on the computer. If the user interface (UI) language files that are needed to support the roaming user’s default UI language have not been installed on the computer, the localized names of the new folders might not display correctly."

Essentially - the MUI (multilingual user interface [pack]) needs to be deployed to each computer - before Folder Redirection can be employed.
