this is a computer on a windows 2003 domain. The Offline File option is greyed-out everywhere I try to get to it on the vista machine. Please tell me I"m not going to have to get into GPOs to do this. Thanks.

Yes, it may be GPOs.  If you type GPEDIT.MSC in the search dialog box off the Start Menu (or the Run dialog box there, if you have it), hit the Enter key, then reply to the User Account Control prompt:  Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Network -> Offline Files -> there is a setting for Allow or Disallow use of the Offline Files feature.
