Except that when using an NT or 2000 PDC the new user gets a local
profile as the default.

I'm not concerned with the method as I'm familiar with the OS's.
It's the difference in the default operation that I've experienced. When
a new user logs onto a workstation (NT/2k/XP) that is a member of an MS
PDC the profile starts out as local and can be made roaming by an admin.
When a new user logs onto a workstation that is a member of a Samba PDC
the profile starts out as roaming and can be changed to local.
In either case the type of profile can be changed at the client but why
is the default profile type completely opposite? And what can be done
