Roaming profiles and folder redirection for Win9x clients

I am having a problem creating roaming profiles and folder redirection for users that log onto my domain using PCs running Win95 and Win98. I have a domain running Win2k server.

I have created the user account in Win2k AD. How can I create the roaming profiles and folder redirection? I know...

that Win2k group policy does not support clients running Win95 and Win98.

Folder redirection for Win95/98 clients from a W2k AD network is not possible since the control is GPO based, and Win95/98 does not support GPOs. As for roaming profiles, those should be configured on the Win2kdomain controller as you would configure such for a user account using any type of client.
