Folder Redirection of My Documents on a Mac

We currently have our XP laptop users setup using folder redirected My Documents that sync with our Windows 2003 server using Offline Files. That setup is configured in Active Directory.

We are preparing to transition those laptop users from their XP machines to new MacBook Pros. How can we configure Mac OS to achieve the same functionality?

I located the solution. It's called "mobile accounts with portable home directory syncing".
I don't believe you can apply group policy's to OSX

There are third party products that may help, for example:
but even they don't look like they can handle folder redirection but you could check them out.

It doesn't necessarily have to be done through Active Directory, though it would certainly be nice. I'm really just looking for a way to do the folder redirection/sync between the Macs and the Windows 2003 server.
Do you need to copy files in both directions or is the server just used as a backup? You might try to use  rsync (see the man page in the terminal for details).
