Q

Can I set up roaming profiles so that users can access their own settings/network area from any clie

I am trying to set up a small local area network using a machine loaded with Windows 2000 server connected to a number of clients running Windows 98 SE. Is it possible to set up roaming profiles so that a user can log into any client machine and access his/her individual settings/network area? Does the server have to be a domain controller or can it be a standalone server? Finally, where could I find the instructions on how to set this facility up?
For roaming profiles to function, you must have a domain. It is possible to use roaming profiles for Windows 98 clients on a Windows 2000 domain. For details on creating roaming profiles for Windows 98, see Chapter 7 of the Windows 98 Resource Kit that came with Windows 98.
