Best hardware configuration for roaming profiles

If I need to set up a roaming profile for my users on the domain on Windows 2000 Server. What is the best hardware configuration needed to accomplish this work?
It's not really a hardware issue. If your clients and network are sufficient to support domain activity, then they can support roaming profiles. A higher speed network, such as 100 MB, is often better when roaming profiles will include large home directories. I usually recommend re-mapping home directories and the My Documents folder to a fixed network share rather than leaving them in the user profile. This will reduce the user profile size.
