The profile itself, or just parts of it?

The profile stays on the C, but you can redirect just about all of the files to another location with no problem. For example, my profile is on the c, but My Documents, Favorites, etc are on the D. To do this, just right click on the specific file within the profile, and select Move, then select the desired location. Or, read up on roaming profiles, if you're looking to have this in a networked setup where users always need access to their files but aren't always in the same location.

I know how to do that, but I just want the entire users profile when the login into a particular server, to be stored on the D drive and not the C drive.

Sorry. Changing the default location for the profiles would require modifying the software--it's not just a setting.
