How to move user profiles from C:\USERS to D:\USERS

Hello,
I have a windows 2008 terminal server with about 15 users.   I originally created a 150GB system partition (C) and a large 800GB data partition (D).    The users are putting tons of data on their desktop, outlook, etc.    Though I could approach this administratively and get them to put all data in their user folders on the D drive (already redirected my documents to their user folder on D) and redirect outlook, etc.  

My question is how can I move their user profiles from C to D?   I have done this before with windows 2003 via the registry, but haven't been able to do that with vista or windows 2008.  Any ideas?
