W2K and Profiles (Under Samba 2.2)

Manea has sent me a message (see below) saying, quite authoritivly, that
W2K is not going to honour NTCONFIG.POL after build 2128 (I'm using 2195).
It will use Group Policies Objects under Active Directory. This seems to
mean that a Samba PDC will not be able to do policies.

Has anyone actually done some work on this ? Does it perhaps not apply when
the W2K box is connecting to the domain in legacy mode ? If somebody has
tried it, please let me know to save me having to make a policy file on my
test system.
