Is there a way to change windows local account profile to a domain account profile? [duplicate]

I have a user who has been using her local windows xp user profile. Now with Active Directory implementation, I want to have the same profile associated to her new domain account profile. I know I can transfer files and folders manually. But I want to know if there is a way to associate profiles?

"My answer from a duplicate question:

Easiest way to transfer your profile to the domain is :

Go to system properties by Control Panel > System, or the easiest way is to press Windows Flag+Pause/Break.

Go to the advanced tab (XP and before), or click on ""Advanced system settings"" (Vista and 7).

(You may have to start by changing type to ""Roaming Profile"")

Click settings under ""User Profiles"", then find your user and choose the copy to option. Simply choose \servername and wherever your profiles are kept.

With Active Directory users and computers, make this the profile path and next time you login, it should pull this profile from the server."

Files & Settings Transfer wizard is probably a step above manually copying
