PeerToPeer user desktops to Domain user

By gwadsworth ·
I have be saddled with the responsibility of implementing a new W2k domain and moving the 15 or so peer to peer(PTP) users to that domain, while also migrating the NT4 domain users to the new W2k domain.

Is there any simple way to join the PTP users to the domain while preserving there desktops and installed applications. I have read a few articles suggesting that creating a roaming profile for user migrating to new domains. Will the roaming profile technique work most of the applications and their desktops?

Thank you for any information you can provide.

SubInACL is a command-line tool that enables administrators to obtain security information about files, registry keys, and services, and transfer this information from user to user, from local or global group to group, and from domain to domain. For example, if a user has moved from one domain (DomainA) to another (DomainB), the administrator can replace DomainA\User with DomainB\User in the security information for the user's files. This gives the user access to the same files from the new domain.

When the user logs into the domain, they are created with a new profile (unless existing profile is given permission to their domain account). You can login as Administrator and copy the user's existing profile over their new profile and thus keeping their existing settings via System control panel, Advanced, User Profile Settings.
