help with Start Menu/Desktop Samba 2.0.5a Roaming Profiles

I finally have Samba 2.0.5a working as a PDC on a
Solaris 2.6 NIS master machine.  UNIX password syncing
is finally working - thanks to all for great documentation.

I am able to login to the PDC with my account from a couple of WinNTSP3
workstations with no problems.  I'm having a problem not
seeing the icons in my roaming profile's Desktop group.  I appear to
instead receive the icons in C:/winnt/desktop  even though
I'm showing the Programs in my roaming profile on the Samba server
when I goto Start Menu Programs.  I can look on the Samba
server and see my icons in the \\%N\profiles\%U\Desktop location.

I have write access to my profile because I can successfully add/delete
items from the Start Menu/Programs and get the updated list.

I have set DeleteRoamingCache = 1
as was mentioned in the archives.

Any ideas?

Also, under Start Menu I see two sets of Programs.   One is from
c:/winnt/Start Menu/Programs and the other is from my roaming
profile.  Since I can't delete  c:/winnt/Start Menu/Programs is there
another way to make only the roaming profile Programs appear?
