Windows 2000 and Samba2.2 - Roaming Profiles

Does anyone out there have Samba 2.2 actually working with Windows 2000 Pro clients, and specifically, using Roaming Profiles?
Samba is acting as a PDC and works great for Win98. And as far as I can tell, everything seems to work with Win2000 EXCEPT the Roaming Profiles. 
I can access all the shares, read and write files, even the login script works!!! (which I won't need if the profiles would work)

I have to believe that I am not the only person in the world who is trying to do this... I have worked with Samba for many years, and never had too much trouble. An occasional glitch here and there, but have always been able to figure it out. But this problem does not appear to have a solution.

Maybe since Win2000 sets the local user profile directory as a "System Folder", Samba reacts differently to it. 

Any suggestions?
