Also try  making a roaming profile for them before copying over there old
profile in to the new roaming one?

Which would be ishy is you have a lot of users.

Yes, the 20 or so new computers that I have attached to the PDC are all 
using Roaming profiles and they work great.  Here are the lines from my 
smb.conf that you requested.

logon path = \\%L\profiles\%U

        path = /home/samba/profiles
        guest ok = yes
        browseable = no
        read only = no
        create mask = 0600
        directory mask = 0700
        share modes = no

My and your lines are very similar at the least.  Thanks for any additional
