profile problems NT 4.0 server, applicaton errors!

I'm having all kinds of problems with profiles in NT.  I've created several profiles in user manager.  Right now, all the current users are logging in under there workstation group then connecting to the server.  I want everyone to begin logging in under my domain.  I've simply been copying there current profile of each user onto the server (C:\profiles\"user name")then creating that path for them (local user profile under user manager on server) to login with onto the network domain.  I want everyone logging in under the network domain so we can share calendars, etc under Exchange server.  2 things happen: 1) they can't run any applications.....all applications produce applicaton errors.  Why?  Even though all the application software is on the local computer (c: drive).  
2) their personalized backgrounds don't show up
   This should be pretty easy.  What dumb mistake am I making?
