Christopher,

If all users are logging on to the terminal server with their own
individual accounts then I believe the terminal server will create a
user account under C:\Documents and Settings. I think (don't have a
server here to test on right now). If so, then you can create a working
copy under that path for each user account or create a folder structure
of working copies somewhere else, one for each Terminal Service user.
e.g. D:\working\JohnSmith, d:\working\MaryJones, etc.

You do NOT want to put the files out somewhere else for all users to
modify simultaneously as Terminal Services will not tell all of the
other users that a document is being used. This shared file could then
potentially be altered by several people before any one person does a
commit.

Hope that helps.

Regards,
Frank
