I would say yes because I think this is the easiest way, as INTRALINK is a data manager you need to check parts out befor you use them and you can start Pro/E without INTRALINK.
If you have INTRALINK accross a LAN and several work stations you can have one folder where you keep the DTL and friends. Then when Pro E is fired up the config will draw on the data that is in this company standard folder, you can make it copy to a local drive too.
The templates are best put into the 'pro/E load point'\templates
Then the user can start a new part from Pro/E and use the same template that would be used in INTRALINK.
best of luck, being very flexable means you can flex it into a right pickle!
