[Samba] Can't create profile directory

My apologies to the list.
The problem I have is another one. W2K can't copy \\server\home\user\profile
<file://\\server\home\user\profile>  to c:\documents and setting\user. Says
the directory name is invalid.
It creates a c:\documents and settings\user.bak.
Then the next time i login it doesn't give the error and creates
c:\documents and setting\user.

I have the same problem too, but only the first time I log on. Then it
creates everything just fine.
I think it's something with Samba 2.2.4 and SP2.

Finally I got SAMBA acting as an PDC. I can see the users of my domain, my
logon script
is working, ...
But my profile directory can't get created eventhough I have given everyone
ALL rights (CHMOD 777).
I still get the message beneath when logging in:
"Windows cannot create profile directory
<file://\\srvlin\home\profiles\mevi.pds> \\srvlin\home\profiles\mevi.pds. 
You will be logged on with a local profile only. 
Changes to the profile will not be propagated to the server. 
Contact your network administrator. 
DETAIL - Access is denied."
I added the next lines in SMB.CONF:
logon script       = logon%U.bat
logon drive        = H:
logon home         =  <file://\\%L\%U\.profiles> \\%L\%U\.profiles
logon path         =  <file://\\%L\home\profiles\%U> \\%L\home\profiles\%U
comment           = Profiles (%h)
writeable         = yes
browseable        = no
path              = /home/profiles
create mask       = 0600
directory mask    = 0700
When I look to the directory properties from my WIN2K machine I see that
I've got all
the rights. Has anyone got an idea what's wrong?
