In the meantime, I'd use USMT or SMA to do the job. This requires some hacking, and both are easier to do in Provisioning than OSD, but there are howto's and hints on this forum and on droppedpackets.org. I'd post links, but I'm already pushing the blackberry's limits by replying at all.
thanks for the prompt reply!
Are you aware if this has been improved in 8.8! or whether this just doesn't work as i thought it should?
BTW, Although this is all new to me, i will look into Provsioning route to!
It hasn't improved in 8.8, to my knowledge. Couple of things, now that I'm at a computer:
You can't add new scripts in C:/Program Files/LANDesk/ManagementSuite/ldlogon/pmscripts/applications/ -- you just have the ones there to modify.

Using USMT with Provisioning: http://community.landesk.com/support/docs/DOC-2290
I forgot to ask about SMA being IBM/Lenovo specific! but i guess you've answered my question.
For non IBM/Lenovo machines USMT is the way forward (correct me if i'm wrong!). Excuse my ignorance as i'm not that clued up on Provisioning, but i briefly read the link on USMT from your post above, but isn't that only for capture! how would i deploy the copied profile to an already built machine?
So if user is changing laptop (laptop A), and I already have a machine built (laptop B), how do i get the "Provisioned" profile copied to the new machine?
