Thanks, Johnny ... Yes I have added those register entries and was able 
to join the Win 7 box to the domain just fine. I was also able to create 
a domain user account. I can logon with that domain user account just 
fine. The domain user home directory gets connected properly to drive H: 
and I can see the \\server\profile\user share just fine. The only thing 
that is not occurring is that the profile created on the Win 7 box is a 
local profile and not a roaming one with the caveat that if the a local 
Win 7 profile is not found it takes the one found on the 
\\server\profile\user share as a default.  It is like the Win 7 box is 
setup to use local profiles only even if the profile is a roaming one. 
There are register entries you can set to make this happen but they are 
not present in my registry from what I can see.
