We've applied SP1 for WinXP on several machines and now roaming profiles 
don't work them.
I tried swithching "nt acl support = yes" as previously mentioned on this 
list but this still doesn't
  work for us and we continue to get the following error:

Windows did not load your roaming profile and is attempting to log you on with
your local profile. Changes to the profile will not be copied to the server 
you logoff. Windows did not load your profile because a server copy of the
profile folder already exists that does not have the correct security. Either
the current user or the Administrator's group must be the owner of the folder.
Contact your network administrator.

Windows cannot find the local profile and is logging you on with a temporary
profile. Changes you make to this profile will be lost when you log off.

We have a NT4 domain, samba 2.2.5 and 2.2.6.pre2 on solaris 8 servers.
