Problems with multiple logins using Notes 6

We recently upgraded our school from Notes 5 to Notes 6. Being a school, we have a number of systems that two or three teachers need to share. With Notes 5, one teacher could log in, and as long as a shortcut was placed on the teacher's desktop, any other person could check his or her mail. Now, with Notes 6, each person has to log out and the new person must log in to check mail -- as the data file is saved with the profile.

The problem we recently experienced is when one person logs out and someone else logs in, the setup screen appears, and I have to set up the account again (though their information is located in "C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Application Data\Notes\data" folder). What makes it worse is, when the first person logs back in, I have to do the whole thing over again. I cannot have it this way!

I am not sure what I have done wrong, or if there is something I missed along the way. Is there a solution? Better yet, is there a way, when there is more then one user, to have the data files stay on the C drive, as with version 5, rather than in the profile?
This seems extremely odd to me, but perhaps it is because you have set this up as a roaming profile? As opposed to roaming, you could do the classic method of giving people their own locations to switch to when they log on.
