logon servers with both NT and Samba

Would someone please explain if you have an NT server running and you
have say 2 FreeBSD/Samba boxes and a few 98 machines, can one of the
Samba boxes be a logon server? If the answer is no, then what would you do
in the case of having multiple NT servers for netlogon.
The reason I ask is this. I am a student in an MCSE program and as well run
Samba on the FreeBSD platform. So I have not had the opportunity to work
for a company where situations like this may or may not ocure.
I use NT for dial-ups that I provide and for setting policy for different users
(just to learn policy for 98/nt course) but I use one Samba box for the users
/home/user for thier personal files and for their own web sites. I have noticed
though in the user manager for domains on NT, in the policy part, where you
put logon to: i have it set to \\freedom\%username% which translates to
machine freedom /home/user. When I saw a logon for myself I noticed that it
put directories such as application Cookies Desktop....why is it putting
those directories there? All I want it to do is be able to have the users be
able to use z:\ as thier personal private dir. Is there anyway of doing this?
My current smb.conf for that machine (freedom) is set to domain logons =
No but yet as explained above, the dir's are put on the unix server.
I am totally confused.
Thanks for reading this and thank you in advance for any help you may offer.
