Need help building custom start menu using folder redirection group policy on Windows 7.

I am deploying some Windows 7 workstations into my domain.  I currently provide my XP users a completely custom start menu using folder redirection through a group policy.  I would like to do the same thing with these Windows 7 workstations, but I am not having much success.

I am building a directory on the local hard drive of the Windows 7 workstations using a startup script that contains the custom menu I want to push out.  I have enabled folder redirection in a user policy but my start menu doesn't contain any of the items I am placing into the custom start menu folder.

I could really use some help with this, a step by step tutorial would be awesome of anyone knows of one.

Do you have any Folder Redirection errors in the Event Viewer? And are you sure the folder has updated the path in the Shell Folders value in the registry?

HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders
HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders

"Start Menu" value should be pointing to your redirected location....

It turned out that the permissions on the folder I was creating were not correct.
