I hope, I can help you a little bit. Excuse me for my bad english.

You can put a Default-User-Profile on the Samba-PDC-Server. 
; WinNT.conf:
; 000515
; Extra-Page to smb.conf
; global
	; "Startmenue" for Logon
	logon script = logon_winNT.bat
	; Home-Dir
	logon drive = H:
	; Path for Home-Dir
	logon home = \\%N\%U
; Domane 
	; Path for default-net-logon
	path = /home/logon
	writable = no
	public = no	
	locking = no
; end WinNT.conf

I hope, it helps you.

Bye Michael
