  Hi all (and sorry for my poor english :) )

Samba server:
     Red Hat Linux 9.0

     Windows 2000 AS (V 5.0 Build 2195: Service Pack 4)

         workgroup = SAMBA.LAN
         netbios name = SAMBSRV
         encrypt passwords = yes
         domain master = yes
         local master = yes
         preferred master = yes
         os level = 65
         security = user
         domain logons = yes
         logon path = \\%L\profiles\%u\%m
         logon script = logon.bat
         logon drive = H:
         logon home = \\%L\%u\.win_profile\%m
         log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
         log level = 2
         max log size = 50
         dns proxy = No
         admin users = root
         passdb backend = tdbsam
         add user script = /usr/sbin/useradd -d /dev/null -g 100 -s 
/bin/false -M %u

         comment = Home Directories
         read only = No
         browseable = No

         comment = All Printers
         path = /usr/spool/samba
         printable = Yes
         browseable = No

         path = /usr/local/samba/profiles
         browsable = no
         writable = yes
         create mask = 0666

drwxrwxrwx    2 root    root         /usr/local/samba/profiles
drwxrwxrwx    2 root    root         /usr/local/samba/netlogon
