Before I try it and find out the hard way... if you use folder redirection via a Server GPO will it redirect the Document Libraries (Documents, Music, Pictures, Videos) on Window 7 workstations?

Using folder redirection, you have the option to redirect any number of folders - including Documents, Music, Pictures, Favorites, Desktop, and AppData.

When redirecting the Documents folder, you have the option to have the folders such as Music, Pictures, Videos, etc. go to their own location, or simply follow the Documents folder.

Here's a great article on getting this set up:

I see that with the exception that some folders must follow My Documents if it is XP. I have been playing around with it and the problem I am having is finding clear, concise documentation on setting permissions on the main share on the server. To get it to work and actually creatte the folder for the user I had to give Everyone full control on the main share. That isn't good.

 Is there any clear, concise document on creating the main share on the server (Server 2012) and setting the initial permissions?

You're correct - with Windows XP, the folders MUST follow My Documents, which is the parent folder in that case.

Here's the reference we use for setting up folder permissions server-side:
