[OpenAFS] Windows Logon Scripts

One of the last obstacles I have to rolling out OpenAFS company wide is
that of Windows. So far, I have everything working beautifully with
single sign-ons with a MIT Kerberos realm. The final part of my Windows
setup is that of getting the data off the client machines and onto the
One of the caveats to using the Kerberos logins is that you need a local
account, which contains a local profile. What I did was map all my
users to this account. What I need to do is have it redirect folders to
the appropriate /afs directory, or (ideally) use roaming profiles. I've
come across a really interesting page regarding this at
http://www.coe.uncc.edu/~rmdyer/krblogon.htm. The problem is that this
just seems overkill for my setup.
All I want to do is just have one additional drive map to
/afs/.../home/%USERNAME% when a user logs in, and redirect the desktop
and "My Documents" (Start with the basics).
Does anyone know of a good way to do basic things like this when logging
into Windows? I don't see a way to call a login script via. the OpenAFS
1.4.1-rc2 client that I'm testing.
