User Profile Move

I have to roll out 200+ new workstations.  I need to move ALL the user data from the old workstation to the new workstation.  This includes, outlook pst's, ost's, personal folders, certificates, everything under "My Doc's", desktop, fav's, etc...  
Is there an application that can do all that?  Basically I want to launch the app move the data to a holding area (share) then install the new workstation, have the user login, then launch the app to restore everything back in the correct location.  does something like this exist?  I am running a win2k3 AD domain

Microsoft makes a wonderful app called the User State Migration Tool.

I looked it over, but I have reservations about the "does not" move list.

You can try using the File and Settings Transfer Wizard that comes with XP.  But its not automated, you have to run it from the workstation.

thanks for all the suggestions.  One last question I should have asked be for accepting solution.  Just copy over the ntuser.dat file or all the ntuser files?
