How to copy local user profile

By techless ·
I'm working on a W2K workstation. I would like to create (copy)a profile for a new user (with the exact setup of an existing non administrator user). THis is to be a local profile on that workstation only.

When I do the copy -- it asks for a location? "Copy profile to:"
Where should I go with it?! And what is the syntax? The user I want to copy says DomainName\username.
Other tips would be helpful. I've read the help on the W2K ... but I'm missing something basic here.

How to copy local user profile

do you want this for all users, or one user. For one user log in as the new user then log out, log in again as an admin (preferably not the same account as the one you want to copy as you can get file locking problems.when copying, select the documents and settings\username folder for your NEW user as the target. when completed, log in again as the new user and you should see your modifications.

Thanks ... I'm still spending time cleaning up things that I don't want the same.
But it got me through what I did not know!
