This domain uses roaming profiles for these specific users. I want to have files in the profile of every profile created. On a regular machine, I would put it in the All users directory. I can’t do that here because it is a roaming profile. Thoughts?

Script it in Group Policy. If I'm not mistaken, group policy logon scripts execute as the system account - this allows you to put in a script that copies files to the all users folder without serious concerns about permissions. Reference the %allusersprofile% environment variable when creating the script to copy files - for example:

copy "\server\share\path\to\file to\copy*.*" "%allusersprofile%\desktop"
