Hi

I created a DFS root and Link called \\company.com\Department\

Now I want all users to have offline folders syncing to this DFS link. How do I specify the PC's to do this?

Eg, people save their word docs on their desktop or my documents, I want all PCS to have synchronisation configured to sync to  \\company.com\Department\

Easiest way is folder redirection via GPO.

To redirect a folder, open the Group Policy Editor and navigate to User Settings-> Windows Settings -> Folder Redirection.  You will need to do this separately for any of the  four folders you would like to have folder redirected,  but the procedure for doing so is the same for each folder.

Set the folders setting option to Basic -> Redirect Everyones Folder To The Same Location. Next, select the "Create A Folder For Each User Under The Root Path" option from the Target Folder Location drop down list.

Finally, enter your root path in the place provided.  In your example, \\company.com\Department as the root path.  Windows will automatically create all of the necessary folders and will set the required permissions as well.
