    I am setting up my own small network that include the following configuration :

    Server : Windows 2000 Server with active directory
    Clients : 5 clients

    My question is :

    Is there an easier way have the existing local account converted to active directory account.

    Objective :

    I want to be able to have the current user of the pc sign-on to an active directory account and be able to have all the access to the existing applications, email(outlook express), bookmarks etc. which have been there in the local pc before the active dierctory upgrade.

    I found that once I log in the local pc to the active directory domain, everything start fresh. The "my document" is empty. Cant see all the setting/folders which have been set up before the conversion to active directory.

    Appreciate any suggestion.
