Greetings,

I am experimenting with a Win2k3 server installation as a DC for a small
home net work of 4 or 5 WinXPpro clients. I have the DC up and running with
DHCP, DNS, Print Server, and File Server responsibilities. I have
established Redirected Folders (My documents, App Data, etc.). I have two
unrelated questions.

First: What are the added benefits of implementing Roaming Profiles? It
seems as if Folder Redirection achieves 90% of what I need (the ability for
all users to access their documents from any computer on the LAN).

Second: Is there an "easy" way to assign a canned set of access privileges
to a group such that my users can actually perform meaningful tasks once
they log onto a domain computer? The default user group "Domain Users"
seems to lack the functionality to allow my users to run/install many
programs. As a work around, I have assigned each of my domain users to a
local user group (WinXP's "super user") on the individual client PCs. While
this seems to work, I suspect that this could easily become a management
nightmare even on my small network.

Thanks,
Dave

You can make them members of the Local Power Users group.

If you need more, you can make them member of the local Administrators group.

Additionally, you can use the Delegation of Control Wizard:
