    I just upgraded to XP Pro so I could get on my domain. I need to migrate my settings to my new user name. I thought I'd seen something in XP somewhere that did that.
    thanks,

    What I've understood : you've modified your computer name and want to enable administrator settings to it or .. ??

    Hey thanks for reply guys.
    Yes on both counts. My domain login name is different than the existing user name(s), so when I set up XP to login to the domain I made another user(admin) with the domain login name but all my old stuff is gone. I was copying from the old documents and settings folders to the new user name D&S folders but some stuff still isn't right.
    Makes me wonder can I reassign my old user name to login with my domain login but keep the same Documents and Settings folders from when I was logging in locally. Does that make sense? That's when I went hunting for the Transfer Wizard.
    thanks again,
