    user profiles (xp sp3)

    Hi everyone,

    I am wondering how to create user profiles on xp sp3 that I can copy for new users. I would like to have different profiles, administrators, powerusers, normal users etc and save a default profile for each so I can setup identical profiles for other users. Including pointing all user data, mydocuments etc to a partion no using the c:

    Thanks
    Regards

    I'm not sure I understand what it is you want to do.

    What do you mean by "copy for new users" ?? Where do you want to copy these profiles to ?? When you say "default profile for each" do you mean a common profile that all use ??? Do you have a second partition on the system ??

    Do you mean new users in a networked environment on other PCs? If you are running a domain environment you can use group policy to define any group or user capabilities and deploy them at when the user logs on to the network.

    Hi thanks for your reply,

    Its not a network, and yes I do have a partition setup. And yes I mean a common profile that every user uses. But with their own folder for there settings and documents within the partition.

    Thanks

    If I understand what you are saying:

    You want each user to have their own userid/password but be of a certain type (i.e. admin, power user, etc.)
    1.) Create a user account of whatever name your want for each type of user. Setup the rights, accessibility, start menu, desktop, etc. for each type.
    2.) Create an new individual user account.
    3.) Go to My Computer | Properties | Advanced | User Profiles | Settings. Select the previously configured type and then select Copy To. Use the next dialog box to find the new user to configure. OK your way out.
    4.) Make any adjustments to the new user as required.

    NOTE: When you are setting up the account type templates, if you already have an user account that you might use as a template see step 3 & 4.
