This guide will help you setup folder redirection on Server 2003:

I use folder redirection on all my servers; it  allows users to easily use other computers and to still access their files. This also makes backing up user data very easy.
Good luck.

I realized that it did it locally when the administrator loged in, but if a user log in with his computer it did not create the redirect folder in the server.

You did it to the local policy? not the domain policy? If you want this change to effect everyone make sure you do it to the domain policy. Let me know if it works now.

how do i know if is local or domain?, because i went to my group policy management and then i create a GPO in Domain controller and then i linked to my gpo, and then in case i linked the domain.local.

There are many ways to do this. One way is to open Active Directory Users and Comptuers. From there right click on your domain name and click properties. Click the Group Policy tab and select the Default Domain Policy in there. Now click on Edit. You are now able to edit the group policy for the domain.
You will notice the first item on the left will say something like 'Default Domain Policy [<domain name>.<domain type(com, net, local, etc)>]'
Hopefully this will be the last thing you need. Good luck.
