if you answer a GETDC request, you will get a WNetWkstaUserLogon call from
95. this contains the user profile location, and only _then_ is the w95
user's user/pdomain/pass uactually used - to obtain the user profile!
this is why win95 doesn't have the concept of domain logons, it's an
the act of responding to the WNetWkstatUserLogon call is the job of a PDC
or a BDC. do the GETDC, you have to do the WNeWkUL too.
