Have you looked at www.microsoft.com/technet? You could create a template and then use this to create all your users. Hope this helps.

Start with Technet article "Step by Step Roaming Profiles Configuration (Q161070)":
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q161070
(please remove any spaces)

And then read Technet article "AddUsers Automates Creation of a LargeNumber of Users (Q199878)":
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q199878
(again, remove any spaces)

hope this helps

You can use the Administrative wizards provided by Microsoft under Administrative Tools (Common) or you can setup Template users with permissions and rights under User Manager for Domains and then type in the username but for the profiles and home directiories you would type this

driveletter:\sharename\%USERNAME%
profilepath:\sharename\%USERNAME%

this way, the user is setup with a home directory and account upon logon, home directory is setup immediately, and profile is created after first logon and logout of the account.

Note that the users's home directory is Full Control
