"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The class file is a subset of the profile.  The reason you have two is it allows for easier reuse of the file. The intent is to give the administrator more flexibility by allowing the admin to separate out the portions of the profile that were
deemed to be more likely to be the same between a large number (class) of machines.
