Where does C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\local settings come from with Roaming profiles

Where does C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\local settings come from? This question seemed obvious to me until i started investigating. With new profiles (created from Default user) it is easy: Local settings come from the Default user profile. But where do local settings come from when logging in with a roaming profile (stored on a Windows 2008 domain), and how can i enter files and settings there?
The reason for this question is that we have a software package (Superoffice) that has all settings about additional tools in C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\local settings. When a user logs onto another workstation, he or she gets the roaming profile, but all information about these tools is lost. The tools have to be installed again by the user to get the required local settings, which is a pain.
