I have Samba PDC and XP client and i have no problem joining and logging in to the PDC.

After a few tests, i come to notice that each user that logs in to the XP box, will create his own profile on XP at 'Documents and Settings' folder and those profiles are copied to the PDC.

when i try to use another username to log on to the same XP box, it will also create his/her own profiles at 'Documents and Settings' folder on the XP.

I think there will be a problem, because any samba users who logs in to the same XP box, can access anyone else profiles that were created on the XP box.

And maybe this is not samba's problem, its XP. but anyone knows how to deal with the security issues on the XP box?
