I found a workaround for this that is interesting.
If I create the inital user profile in Windows 2K, and then log in from NT,
everything works fine. There is some file or difference in the Windows 2K
profile that is "more correct" than in NT. Any ideas? I am still hoping to
hear some theories or solutions.

I have a Linux RH 7.2 box, with samba 2.2.2, acting as a PDC. It
perfectly with Win 2K clients, but with NT 4.0 boxes, they cannot modify
their desktops, save files to the desktop, etc.
I get the "welcome to windows NT" splash screen when it comes up, and
is no checkbox to tell it not to do that in the future.
I can log in, browse, and otherwise do normal stuff.
Also, there is not a .pds extention to the directory. I have seen some
that the user profiles directory needs a .pds extention.
All client machines are NT 4.0 SP 6
Here is the smb.conf.
