[Samba] Moving Existing W2K Local Profile to W2K Roaming profile

I am running Samba 2.2.3a on RedHat 7.3. I have a user with an extensive
Local Profile. I want to join his computer to the domain and make his
current local profile a roaming one. I have tried the following steps:
Attached the computer to the domain.
Logged into the computer as a Domain Administrator.
Gone to my computer -> user profiles.
Selected the users local profile and clicked on Copy To.
In the path to copy to I put \\crhpdc\profiles\username.
I then telnet to crhpdc and
chown -R username.useranem ./profiles/username
It succeeds in copying all of the files to the correct place. When I try to
login as the user, however, the registry portion of the profile refuses to
load but all of the Files and Icons etc. are there.
I have read the extensive post found here
http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=samba&m=104260390311570&w=2 but I'm still
pretty lost. I gather that there is something called the User SID and found
the registry entry that tells where that person's profile is located but I
don't really know what to do from here. I was able to download getsid.exe
and use it seemingly successful enough.
I also realize that there is a utility in the latest CVS that will help me
edit the ntuser.dat file on the samba server. I think this is the way I
want to go but I'm not 100% sure. Can someone shed some light on how I need
to use the new Samba utility to make this current .dat file work like I need
Smaller and not as important of a question: I read that you should have
username.domain directories for your profile directories. I have
username.000, username.001, and sometimes username~000. Does anyone know
off-had what this means? Did I screw up somewhere?
