Offline Files as a global setting

Hi
I'm making XP images ready to deploy for my users. And I would like to add the offline files feature to the image.
Can I enable Offline Files in some way so that when the user log in to the pc it would automatically "know" his home folder to sync with. Offcourse I would put the path somewhere so the system would know.

There is some useful information here: http://blogs.msdn.com/jonathanh/archive/2006/03/01/user-comments-about-offline-files.aspx.

You should implement this at the server level as opposed to trying to somehow incorporate this into the image.

From the "Active Directory Users and Computers" domain management utility, the "Profile" tab within a user has an option to set a Logon script to run.

You should work with your admin team to build such a logon script for your users that automatically adds the desired folders to the Offline Files synchronization list.

Thank you for your comment, your'e right, I should set this at the server level, maybe even through policys if possible.

Btw, any tip on where I can find logon scripts, I'm not so bright on VB so I can't create my own from scratch. I would need some kind of template to go after.

I believe the technology you will want to use is WScript (Windows scripting). There is solution here that can get you started with Windows login scripts. Posting a detailed question (after searching for existing solutions) about interacting with Offline Files via WScript is probably your best option at this point.
