Same Domain Account Different Roaming Profiles

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
We have a Windows 2003 Domain using roaming profiles. All the PC's are XP but we are doing a test rollout of 2-3 power users to Windows 7. We have folder redirection setup for the most important stuff like My Documents, My Pictures, My Music

I am unsure, but I am thinking that if I log into the Win7 PC as a user with an prior XP Profile, it will "upgrade" it, and then it won't be suitable for going back to XP (if the user moves to another computer). How do I create separate profiles or is this not how it is done? How can I migrate the important stuff between XP and Windows 7 profile wise easily?
