Roaming Profile

Hi there,
I have just set up a windows 2000 advanced server, and some Windows XP Pro workstations.

I need a quick network for now, so have not bothered setting up active directory, or DNS on the server.

I have set up roaming profiles on the server, for the user accounts.


I am unsure how to set the workstations up to use the roaming profile, and so I found the profile bit in the windows regestery, and changed this to the windows share.


When I try to log on to an accout suposively setup to use the roaming profile, am message comes up basically saying

Access Denied


Does anyone know how I can fix this, or If I have set it up right?


Many thanks

I went and Used the computer management windows, and then the snap-in, Users and Groups


btw, I have made sure file permissions were set to allow for all. I can get into the file browsing to it as well - and i am very confused as to why the computer can't seam to!

Many thanks
