Help! User profiles are not stored on server

I work at a school in Norway, and am experimenting with a Linux box as a server for our Win95 network.

Most things seem to work like they should, except one important thing: The user profiles are _only_  stored on the local machine...

I am running Internet Explorer 4.01 with the Users function enabled. The network setup is as follows: Samba box as WINS server. "Log on to Windows NT Domain" is checked. Primary logon is Client for Microsoft Networks.

The Linux box is running RedHat 5.0 and Samba 1.9.18p4.

My smb.conf file is attached.

Thanks in advance for all help!
