[Samba] WinXP Roaming Profiles - Samba 3.0b1 Problem

	My company has decided to upgrade everyone from win98 to winXP.  So, I've 
begun the process of setting up a test network to test samba with winXP 
before the XP rollout begins.  I downloaded samba-3.0b1 a couple weeks ago, 
compiled it, and started configuring it.  For the most part everything has 
been a breeze.  I have a winXP SP1a machine on the test network that 
currently sees the samba server as the domain controller, joined the domain 
ok, machine account was automatically created, test user logs in fine, runs 
test user's logon script ok, test user is able to access the shares on the 
server without a hitch.  The only issue I am having thus far is the fact that 
after logging the test user out of the winxp machine, no profile information 
is saved...anywhere.  So, for each login, the test user starts out with the 
local default profile.  When the test user logs on a directory is created on 
the profile share with the users name, but nothing is ever saved to it.   
I've made sure that the registry edits / group policy edits that the samba 
howto lists have been made.   Am I missing something?
