    roaming profiles

    I'm curious about setting up roaming profiles on my home network and I would like to know how to set them up and any particular software required.

    Thanks in advance.

    Here is how you would do it assuming that you're using Windows XP.

    I know how to change between them but when I try to change to a roaming profile I can't because it is 'dimmed' and I want to know what hardware and software I need to have on my network to enable roaming profiles

    As I recall you need to have the computer be a member of a domain or active directory in order to use roaming profiles so that there is a logon server that would store the roaming profile.

    I take it then you are running a version of Windows Server? If so, what version are you using? e.g. 2000, 2003, etc.

    I'm pretty sure you have to have a server (Win2K or Win2K3), and you have to have Active Directory running.
