I wanted to know if and how it would be possible to make all domain users that are logging onto a machine to be forced to use a default user profile stored locally. If someone could assist me I would greatly appreciate it. I can provide any specific information needed... Also if this could be possible through group policy and if so what steps would I have to take to implement this into group policy.

Machine is a windows 7 machine and I am running server 2003.

Thanks again

Here's a good article walking through one way to do this, but it requires using MDT 2010.

And then here is another, simpler way to achieve this:
