we need to be able to specify the profile path as being on the NIS home 
server, too (lp_logon_path()).  can you sort this, possibly by putting 
the NIS home server as a new %% substitution macro, so that people can do 
"logon path = \\%S\profiles\%U" or \\%S\%U\profiles" or 
\\%S\homes\profiles or whatever, where %S is the NIS home server (if %S 
is not currently used...)
