I am reposting this issue since my last mail probably got lost in Samba
mailing lists heavy traffic:
At work (several Win2k and XP clients, Samba PDC, Linux Router) we would
like to separate Win2k and XP profiles, since XP obviously uses
different registry settings and users report lost desktop settings, etc.

The first approach was to use variable substitution:

        path = /profile/%a
        read only = No
        guest ok = No
        nt acl support = no

Both XP and Win2k returned "Win2k" and copied the server based profile
to /profile/Win2k, which implies that XP and Win2k clients cannot be
separated by variable substitution (?). Is separation of profiles for
these OSs at all possible ?

Thanks a lot in advance,
