	I believe that it is a simple matter of calling out the local path that   
you wish to have profiles placed on each machine, in the smb.conf.


	logon path = C:\Documents and Settings\%u

	The above should work, for you. I haven't done so myself, since each   
user on my network has their own unique mailbox, which is saved onto the   
server when they log off. Which is very important to have backed up to   
the server.

	Good luck!

Forcing Local Profiles with a Samba PDC

Is there any way for Samba to force all NT and Win2k
clients of a Samba 2.2.7 PDC to use LOCAL profiles
instead of ROAMING profiles?

In my area each M$ box is attached to test equipment.
The differences in test equipment between M$ boxes
is significant. Roaming profiles are causing boxes
to complain about hardware that exists only on another
box. Forcing local profiles seems to be the logical
fix for this problem, however I don't see a way to
do this in smb.conf.

Currently I have made the "profile" directory in each
user's home directory (Samba's Z: drive) owned by root
and chmod 500. This seems to work but causes an error
on login about their "roaming profile is not available".

Is there a way to force local profiles without causing
this error on login? Thanks for any insight you might
