Need to have multiple default profiles

We have a default profile that is located in the netlogon directory in the domain controller.  It works great, but we would like to have a default profile for each department.  We would like the default profile to be used to initially create the user's local profile (as a default policy does).  I tried specifying a profile path in the user accounts, but then it wants to treat it as a roaming profile.

If I specify the profile path and only give read access, then it creates a temporary profile.  If I make it a mandatory profile (ntuser.man), then it brings down the profile each time they login.  I want it to only bring down the profile when they first login, then use the locally created profile after that (allowing them to make changes).

Is there a way to do this?

Not using that methodology, but you may be able to script the changes.... For example, once the profile is built initially, have a login script which looks for a "complete flag" (maybe a text file), and in its absence, runs a script to modify the profile to be more department specific and then writes the flag to keep it from running again.  You could base it on group membership.  What are the differences between these department profiles you are wanting to use?
