Offline Folders setup in SBS 2003 R2

Barnabus2006 asked
Last Modified: 2012-06-21
Laptop users in our SBS 2003 R2 domain want to have local access to their My Documents folder content.  Foloder Redirection is turned on via the server's Group Policy. Folder Redirection GPO settings haven't been modified and are in the "not configured" state for Computers.

What changes need to be made to allow the files to "live" both on the server and on the laptops?  
CAVEAT 1:  There are only 3 laptops so, please keep in mind we would rather individually configue each laptop as opposed to applying a new OU on the server.
CAVEAT 2:  We don't want to lose any of the user's files/folders now found on the server.
