2. Use Remote Desktop to take control of your office computer (you'll use the full computer name as the address). This necessarily requires that your office computer be powered on and that you've enabled Remote Desktop on it.
Hope this gets you started in the right direction. If you need additional info, post back.

So, I know it can be done but am mystified as to why it works for one and not the other. I'm thinking that it must be a setting or two somewhere but have no idea where..... Any suggestions?

Since I have had this problem I have "tested" the profile by logging them onto another machine and everything seems okay - is this a good test that the profile is okay?
If you think I should recreate then I'm happy to try - guidance would be appreciated.....

Look at MS Articles 314478 for WXP, and 142682 for W2k.

i disagree with this...the purpose for a roaming profile is so that you DON"T need to configure any profiles on the pc they are logging into..
My understanding of roaming profiles is that you must set it up on each computer the user might sign on to. So the profile could be fine on PC1, but not PC2.
i'm personally wondering WHY you're trying to do what you want with roaming profiles to begin with....if the software you're wanting to use is INSTALLED on the server that you're logging into...you shouldn't need any profiles applied...as long as y ou're authenticated to the network..

All software required is installed on the Server. When I login via remote desktop it displays my desktop which I why I mentioned roaming profiles. However when I try to log the other user in it does not - it simply displays the SBS management console.
In essence, all I want to do is to be able to log a user on via remote desktop - connect them to the Server and have them access their "virtual" desktop so they can work from home.

I'm still struggling with this and wonder if anybody can shed any light. I've done more digging on the web but can only find reference to 2003 Server and a Terminal Services setting which will automatically run an assigned program on start up - Having checked all settings in SBS2000 I dont seem to have these settings but this seems to be the right area. Appears to be nothing in Group Policies that is doing this.....
