[Samba] samba 3 and WinXP (again)

Hello everyone,
I have a redhat 9 server running with Samba 3.0.  It's a bit different than
the previous version, but I'm finally getting used to it.  Here's my biggest
issue:  This is a server for approx. 15 clients, all but one running WinXP.
Previously, we were running 2.2.8 w/ Win2K clients.  In the past, we were
able to log into the local computers, even when we didn't have a network
connection.  We were running all stations with local profiles (even thought
the server is no longer running, I have a copy of the conf file).  Now,
we're running XP with version 3 of Samba.  Now, even though we are all
running local profiles, no one can log in without a network connection.
I've read the smb.conf.5 many, many times.  I've re-written the conf file a
number of times, but nothing I do fixes the problem.
	This is becoming a bigger issue now that I've moved the owner and
programmers over to this new box.  Below you will find my current conf file.
	Any help would be greatly appreciated!
