Hey All,

We have 15 or so PCs we are wanting to add to 2003 Server R2.  Is there any way to add PCs to the domain and transfer the user files on that PC, i.e. like you can w/ 2003 SBS?  If not what is the best practice to add PC and the user files to the correct user folder beside the obvious manual transfer.  

-Thanks for the input-

Why do you want to put the users files on the PC - they are best kept on the sever for security and backup.

To join a PC to the domain Right click on "My Computer" and go to Computer name and select CHANGE, select DOMAIN and enter the domain name and follow the wizard through.
