Default Profile in Windows 7

Medium Priority

What is the "Default Profile" profile for in Windows (7)?

If I customize my domain account's profile (like create shortcut settings, etc) and then I select that profile and do "Copy to" in the "Configured advanced user profile properties" the Default User, does that mean, whoever signs onto the laptop next (such as another domain user), they will have similar settings?
What all does it copy to their profile and does it duplicate anything?
Is there a better way in Windows 7 to configure a new user's profile setting (such as preparing the profile for a new employee who hasn't started yet)?
