Redirecting Libraries To Roaming Profile Location

How to change the default location of Libraries through group policy or through a logon script to point to the roaming profile location (e.g. Make the Documents Library redirect to '\\SERVERNAME\profiles\COMPANY\08\%username%\Documents' instead of 'C:\Users\%username%\Documents') and make the link in the Start Menu below the user's display picture redirect to '\\SERVERNAME\profiles\COMPANY\08\%username%'?

Really there is no magic here, you just apply a document redirection policy. Once that policy is applied their documents would be redirected to \\SERVER\profiles\COMPANY\08\%username%\Documents
