W2k3 Server Offline Files on Laptop

Guys i have a gew questions:
I have a domain in the office with several workstations and laptops (winXP Pro). the stations do not need the offline file "copy", but the laptop's do.
Question 1:
could you sujest a GOOD software that will copy/sync when you log in and log off from the domain. (so user comes to work logs in; it syncs and leaves, logs off it syncs again)
Question 2:
when the user is out of the office, does he log in locally on the laptop or on the domain "what obviously not connected"?
Please explain yourself, i am a simply IT guy,
Thanks

It is possible by enabling the offline folder for the folder.

Sorry for my late reply.
The thing is with Offline files it mixes all the files all over!
The user has several directories and they all are put together in the same folder on the laptop.
There must be software available that can synch while loggin in and out!
Please people!
Thanks,
Tariq

The very best software I have found for this purpose is SyncBack Pro (2brightsparks.com). I run it manually because it suits me that way. It can be scheduled to run as you need. I use it for the following reasons:
1. It is very fast.
2. It is reliable (I have not had any errors).
3. It supports databases (QuickBooks in my case). Offline Files does not support this.
4. Access on the local laptop (when offsite and disconnected) is very fast.
