Roaming Profiles migrating from Windows 2000 to Window XP

How do I update Windows 2000 roaming profiles to use the
Windows XP Default Users settings.

I will have a mixed environment while we Upgrade our PC to
Windows XP, but our users will have to logon to XP and
2000 during this upgrade.

This is a concern for multi user stations

Thanks for the info

But my concern is using "Windows 2000" profiles on "Windows XP" system.

Our users will be switching back and forth between "Windows 2000 and Windows XP"

Is there any way to update the "Windows 2000" profiles to a "Windows XP" when the user logs on,

Does the system automatically copy the "Windows XP" default profile to a users "Windows 2000" profiles

All these profiles are roaming profiles.

I don't believe these articles help at all. We are asking
if we can simply use a Windows 2000 roaming profile for
settings or what has to be modified to make the transition
seamless? We are currently starting to purchase units
with XP installed but do not wish to upgrade 200 perfectly
functioning Win2K systems to XP. Can we use the same
roaming profiles without issue?

Thanks in advance for your help.
