Setup a local user on the laptop and create the shortuts for software installed locally on the machine.
All the staff will need to do is remember a new username and pass (ours are generic accross all their laptops) and drop down the domain box to the local computer at the login window.

You could enable and set offline syncronisation for the shares that host the redirected paths and the laptops themselves?

It gives the staff a bit of responsibility to use the equiptment properly though. Makes them responsible for their data . . .

Another way is to dual boot the machine with 2 installations of XP. One called work and the other called home. Create a seperate data partition which can be seen from both installations and let them save their work into that.
you'll probable need two XP license per machine

Offline synchronisation sounds like it might what im after.
How would i go about it?
At the moment the the start menu and dekstop are redirected to a share on our domain controller. Is it something id do on the machine or via the GPO or a combination of the both?

I assume the client is XP?
What OS is on the server?

Clients are running XP SP3, Server is 2008.
jamin100 id love to give the staff soem responsibility, but we have such a hard time pushing things like our VLE and SIMS Learning Gateway, which is for their benefit, there's only so much we can do Thank you for your suggestions though
