[Samba] Profiles on Samba share

while reading the man page to smb.conf I recently stepped over the %a 
macro. This variable contains the architecture of the connecting 
client, so "WinNT" or "Win2K".

We have windows profiles on a samba share. Profiles often get muddled 
up when switching from NT to W2K clients and back.

Now my idea was to set up the following profiles share:

        path                    = %H/ntdata/%a

This way the profile is stored separately for NT and W2K in 

Has anyone already thought of this? Are there any caveats?
