Use folder redirection in active directory or you can just right click on My Documents and change the path to your new drive.

i dont think you can move entire Documents and Settings folder from root partition, windows xp ( assume you have xp) will need that folder by default,  but you can definitely move subfolders to another partition by regediting
go to regedit and find following key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>SOFTWARE>Microsoft>Windows>CurrentVersion>Explorer>User Shell Folders  
and
HKEY_CURRENT_USER>SOFTWARE>Microsoft>Windows>CurrentVersion>Explorer>User Shell Folders
on the right hand side is where those String Values are, and you can modify and redirect your folder path by editing them.

If you're just concerning about the Terminal Services User profiles, you may want to take a look at this:
