Profiles store in server

you could use the "veto files =" option in [global]

set a list of files/folders to be invisible to the users like this:

veto files = /*.vbs/*.eml/Desktop/Cookies/

...and on and on and on...

It's a quick and easy fix.  Otherwise you'll have to use

logon home = \\%N\%U
logon path = \\%N\%U

options to specify another directory altogether to store profiles.

I have a samba PDC.
all its working ok.
i have one share per user and maps its to the users with the "net use p:
/home" in the logon script.
the problem is that im using this script to add a drive in "My Computer"
the users copy important data to this drive and later ill back up directly
in the server...
using the policies i activate roaming profiles and now all the "Aplication
Data" is copying to the drive of the user.. thats ok, but i want to know if
there is a way to choose another directory to store the data of the profile
of the users and "hide" (browseable = no) this data to the user, because
users only knows about microsoft office files and when they come to its own
directory the see a lot of garbage (aplication data containign IE, Outlook
Express, etc.)
