My users currently login to their client desktops to that computer I would like them to login to the domain with that computer.  Basically I am trying to figure out why the old IT person set up the network the way he did.  What are the pros and cons of logging in to the domain versus logging into that computer?  Is there a way to copy files to another profile on the same computer without having to copy the files to CD-RW's and deleting it on the old profile that it currently belongs to and moving it from the CD-RW's to the new profile which logs into the domain?

You lose some network functionality the way you "old IT person" did it. If the user ia a member of the domain, no problem... To copy profile, see http://www.microsoft.com.nsatc.net/resources/documentation/windows/xp/all/proddocs/en-us/sysdm_userprofile_copy.mspx?mfr=true

your old IT person is a baboon :) There is no reason or justifcation to log on locally to a machine when there is a domain available (Accept for servers that face the internet - web servers etc)

Join them up to the domain, then log on locall with the admin account on each machine, right click my computer - properties - advanced - user profiles - copy - select the LOCAL user - copy to - c:\documents and settings\domain user

OK and let it copy.

Done.
