Points to whomever can guide me to or provide steps to do the following.

I have two locations connected over a T1.  We have a server at each location running Windows Server 2003.  We have the Data directory with all our files at location A.  I would like to setup DFS with file replication so that the Data directory is also at location B.  My goals are to speed up file access and provide redundancy for our Data.  All the guides and tutorials I find on the net are incomplete as far as their explanations of DFS and using file replication.

Ok I found a guide myself after much searching.  Most of my confusion came from the fact the the server I was testing DFS on was running W2k3 Standard, you need R2 to get the benifits of DFS that the guides will show.
