Folder redirection - Server 2003 DCs with Windows 7

I am running a server 2003 domain and have just purchased some Windows 7 machines.  Most group policy settings work but folder redirection does not.  I assume this has to do with the difference in pathing between XP and Vista/Windows 7.  Is there an easy way to get this to work?  Perhaps a .adm file I can import into the GPO settings?

Can you post the output of the following from the win7 computer
gpresult /R

Create a test user in a new OU.
Install the RSAT on the windows 7 computer.
Use GPMC on the Windows 7 computer and create a new GPO to redirect the desktop.
Link that GPO to the new OU you create with the test user.
Login to a windows 7 computer and see if the redirection works.
Can you post a screen shot of your policy?

If you run gpresult /R do see the GPO being applied?

Here is a shot of the settings, its a pretty standard setup.  From what I understand this is normal behavior and there needs to be some kind of modification to the standard server 2003 gp for folder redirection when using windows 7 or vista clients.  The policy runs but does not get properly applied.
I have no clue why this happen but i worked around with dfs setting on Windows 2003 server then the redirection worked nicely

Could you elaborate on the DFS settings you modified?  Anyone else have a suggestion?  I thought this problem would have a fairly straight-forward solution as lots of people should be dealing with it.
