i assume because you have a common share named \\%L\Profiles but not a
share named \\%L\Profiles\%U for each user.  you don't connect a drive
letter to a subdirectory of a share, only to the root of the share.
try doing the connection manually from a dos prompt using the net link

  net link x: \\host\Profile\user

and then do a:

  net use

and you'll see what i mean.
