win7 - favorites folder redirection

a few things:
- Will XP clients have their favs redirected to my choosen path \\server\users\%username%\favorites
- Can I somehow retain users exisiting favorites from their local profiles?
- I also already have a GPO setting that specifies network wide favorite URL's (User config\Windows Settings\IE Maintenance\URLs\Favorites) will this policy still be applied in addition to the users own favorites?

XP Clients will not have their favourites redirected, this is Vista and 7 only

Favourites will not automatically move to the re-directed location but this can be scripted (or use USMT)

Yes your GPO should still work correctly

thanks for the replies so my plan is to set fav location in the usual redirection gpo (only my win7 will understand), and then as well to import this custom adm (found on EE) that xp will understand. I'm concerned the custom adm will also be used by win7 so if it worth doing the first step?
