But in fact it worked...
Maybe it's because the home-drive mapping via the user-manager...

If the user hasn't mapped a home drive on the samba machine this is true.
You'll have to reenter the password every logon. But if it is mapped - no.
My problem is that this behaviour changed with W2K. Maybe this is no
samba-problem - but on the other side there might be a chance to get
the old (NT4 like) behaviour...
