I've attempted this myself and never got it to work just the way I thought
it should. In the end I settled for having the thing connect, auto-mount
the network resources the user always has used, with all the passwords
stored in the keychain, etc.
The SBS console doesn't know what to do with the mac, but it doesn't get
agitated about it.
So--I left it using the local account, in the end.
I had a nice step by step, but I think my issue in the end was I couldn't
get the domain account to authenticate properly, but the local one was able
to enter and store credentials that worked just fine.
So--in your case, if the domain account works well, I'd copy the desktop
stuff and user files over manually--not sure whether there might be some
process to do that say, when adding a new user on a Mac.
