How do we create roaming profiles?

We have Windows 2000 workstations and a Windows NT 4.0 server. We would like to be able to create roaming profiles. Please tell us how to configure this.
ON the Windows NT 4.0 Server you will click on each user and click on properties. You then click the profile button and type in a network share where the profiles shall be stored. The share exists on a file server in your environment and the share level permissions must allow Change for EVERYONE. Let's say our server is LONDON. We create a share \LONDONUserdata. When you set the user's profile up, put \LONDONUserdata%USERNAME% as the profile path. When the user logs in and then logs off, the %USERNAME% path will be created with the proper permissions.
