Changing Roaming profiles from Kix script to SBS 2008 folder redirect policy

Currently our folder direction is done by a KIX script. It is NT4 style folder redirection.
I want to change to a group policy based folder redirection.

What will happen if I enable folder redirection?
Will the current folder( printhood, nethood) setup be a problem?
Will the data move from old share location to new share location?

Will folder redirection be the same for Windows 2000, XP, Vista and Windows 7?

All Group Policy does is a "fancy" way of amending the registry.  Effectively you have been implementing your own Group Policy.

If you set Group Policy to match the folder redirection you currently have then you need make no other changes.

You can test it by creating and applying the policy to only one user at a time by filtering using membership of a security group.

The kix script uses old nt4 style folder structure. With modern policy I cannot map those folders.
Those folders are part of the roaming profile.
