We are running AD on a Windows 2008 server.  We would like to have profiles created only on the server and not the local workstation.  Can this be done?

In ADUC, configure users' profile path to point the user profile to be a path on a server share \\server\profileshare$\%username% or similar. Profile will be created automatically on server during logon/logoff process if correct permissions has been configured on the file server.

See http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc757013.aspx about roaming profile permissions.

Also enable the policy setting for deleting cached roaming profiles to keep the clients clean.
