are you sure you've got the permissions correct on the profile share?
what do your logs say?

my config works with win2k machines ...

here are the relevant excerpts

        domain logons = Yes
        os level = 64
        preferred master = True
        domain master = True
note i have an external wins server - you'll probably want to set up
your own.

        path = /etc/samba/netlogon
        write list = root

        path = /home/xp_profiles
        read only = No
        create mask = 0600
        directory mask = 0700
        csc policy = disable
        share modes = No
