How to setup server so that any user can log into any computer and have their data

I don't think I need full roaming profiles but maybe thats what it is. I need any user in the office to be able to login at any computer and have their favorites, desktop icons, & outlook profile. I am running windows server 2008. What is the easiest/best way to do this ?

Setup Roaming profiles.

Have you ever considered going to a Remote Desktop Environment?

I've found that this is the best way to achieve this goal.

dsvoda - will all their current settings that are on their computer as local profiles get copied over automatically when I change them to a roaming profile  or do I need to do something ?

Yes it should all copy over, just make sure to check the sizes of each profile that you are planning to roam and verify that you have enough room on the server beforehand.
