we noticed a strange problems setting the default printer on some profiles:

we run RedHat 7.2++, SAMBA 2.2.3a-6 RedHat; SAMBA works as a PDC with 
roaming profiles. We use Win2K SP2++ Clients.

If we create a new account, this user can change / set his/her default 

Some "older" accounts (I can't say what changed to them...) can't set 
there default printer, they dont _have_ a default printer....

So we moved the server profile and the creation of a new profile-folder 
on the server is forced, an .... the user is allowed to set the default 

Any idea why this done? (setting defaulkt printer)

Is there a global solution, to allow all useres with that problem, to 
set there default printer??

Thanks for hints an tips!
