Hi Oliver and everyone...

To be honest myself you´d be surprised to know that I have a bunch of
boxes still running win9x (P133mhz with 16MB Ram) what else can I ask ;)

And the problem is that the profiles are no SO small, 40-100+ MBs... people
are used to store things on their desktops, and that travels back and forth every time
they log in/out Besides, they DONT need that "feature" cause my users will
ALWAYS log from their respective machines... and they are eating hard disk
space at the server... (this is a school network, thats why it so "modest" :)


pd. Does anyone else know how to turn that feature off either in windows or
smd.conf???? I do need my samba box to be a PDC/Domain master, etc.
I just DONT WANT the roaming profiles thingy!!!
