Can Windows NT and Windows 9x share a roaming profile?

A. No. The main problem is that Windows 9x clients store the profile in the root of their home directory whereas Windows NT clients store the profile in the "profile path" location. Even if you made these the same it would still not work as there are differences in the registry structure and Windows NT stores the user portion of the registry in the file NTUSER.DAT, Windows 9x stores in USER.DAT.
