I have a Windows 2000 server and a Windows Prof client, ADS is set up with Group policies , when a client logs in at the Win 2K Prof machine he always gets his local profile even if I set his profile up to be stored on the server. If I log onto theserver with users name the policies are applied, but they are not applied to the client logging on at the client machine

You need to make sure that the GPOs you have set up that contain the user policies (like Desktop settings, User Profile locations, logon/logoff scripts, etc) are applied to a Site/Domain/OU that the users you want to affect are in.
To me, this sounds like you applied the GPOs to a container that only houses your Domain Controllers. If you apply the GPOs on the domain your users are members of, then that will apply to them no matter what machine they log onto.
So, make sure you didn't just putthe GPOs on the Computers themselves, but somewhere that will apply to the Users. Make a Users OU and apply the GPOs there, for example.
