your samba server is acting as a wins server
you should configure all your clients to point to the servers address
for WINS (it's in the TCPIP settings)
        kernel oplocks = No
        admin users = root
        browseable = No
        strict locking = Yes

        comment = Netzanmeldeverzeichnis
        path = /daten/netlogon
        write list = %U
what is this line?
this should be something like write list = root
make sure that all users have read permissions on /daten/netlogon
        read only = No
        share modes = No

I think this should be [homes] if you want samba to do the automatic
home directory sharing...
        comment = Eigene Dateien
        path = /Daten/home/%U/Eigene Dateien/
        read only = No
        create mask = 0770
        directory mask = 0770


        path = /Daten/home
        read only = No

don't keep the profiles in the same place that you keep home
here is my profiles share
        path = /home/xp_profiles
        read only = No
        create mask = 0600
        directory mask = 0700
        csc policy = disable
        share modes = No
