That's exactly how I have all of my systems set up, and then I just change the Libraries to point to those folders and only those folders.
I do something similar, but I don't use libraries or user folders.
I have folders on D named downloads, mp3, pictures, video, etc and save directly to those folders.
I can't remember when or exactly why Microsoft introduced the "user folder" thing, but I never saw any need to get involved with it. Was it on XP that they first appeared? Or Windows 98?
Likewise, libraries don't add anything I need.
Here is another tutorial by Kari that may be pertinent for the OP: User Profiles - Create and Move During Windows 7 Installation
I think I saw a post by Gregrocker in the last few days in which he said that the best method is to COPY user profiles to D, rather than move them.
