need help with roaming profiles and password change

I'm running Samba 2.0.2 setup as a PDC on a Solaris 2.6 NIS machine.
I am able to successfully login to the PDC from my WinNTSP3 client.
First I was assigned the "Default User" profile I had put in the "netlogon"
share and then it correctly created my user profile in \\N\profiles\U
However, when I login to the PDC from the same WinNTSP3 client
as a different new user, I get the first users' profile instead of the
User" profile.

Any ideas?

Secondly,  whether I have "password sync" on or off  in smb.conf I
can not change my password from the WinNTSP3 client.  I get the following
error message:

Username or old password is incorrect.  Letters in passwords must be
typed using the correct case.  Make sure that capslock is not accidently

Any ideas?

Here's the pertinent parts of my smb.conf:

   debug level = 0
   printing = bsd
   printcap name = /etc/printers.conf
   load printers = yes
   guest account = pcprint
   username map = /usr/local/samba/lib/
   wins support=yes
; these commands are needed to print and remove print jobs
   print command = /usr/ucb/lpr -r -P%p %s
   lpq command = /usr/ucb/lpq -P%p
   lprm command = /usr/ucb/lprm -P%p %j
; these commands enable cross-subnet browsing
   domain master = yes
   local master = yes
   preferred master = yes
   os level = 65
; these commands are for domain logins and profiles
   domain logons = yes
   security = user
   encrypt passwords = yes
   logon drive = N:
   logon home = \\%N\%U
   logon path = \\%N\profiles\%U
   logon script = scripts\STARTUP.BAT
   time server = Yes
   netbios name = eeultra
; needed for "staff" group members to have administrator priv. on pcs.
   domain admin group = @staff
; needed for unix password syncing
;   passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
;   passwd chat = *New*password* %n\n *new*password* %n\n *passw*d*d*on*
;   unix password sync = yes
;   passwd chat debug = true
   interfaces =
   case sensitive = no
   preserve case = yes
   ;mangle case = yes
   ;default case = lower
   short preserve case = yes
;  Can specify by host name of IP address
;  ex:
   hosts allow = 128.143.10./, 128.143.11./,
128.143.137./, 128.143.190./,,
; What NetBIOS workgroup is this server a member of
   workgroup = EEGROUP
   remote announce =

   comment = Home Directories
   browseable = no
   read only = no
   create mode = 0755
   guest ok = no

   comment = contains users' profiles
   path = /dsk1.0/shares/profiles
   guest ok = yes
   available = yes
   browseable = yes
   writeable = yes

   comment = contains network logon scripts
   path = /dsk1.0/shares/netlogon
   writeable = yes
   guest ok = no
