I didn't get any answers so I try again:

I am using tdbsam as passdb backand.

I have added root user with pdbedit.

The machine trust account was added on the fly.

I have added the user with pdbedit.

I have created the user in /etc/passwd.

When the user logs in from a W2k and mounts the home-directory I noticed
that Samba didn't take the home-directory information from tdbsam, it 
took it from /etc/passwd.

Is that correct ?

I assumed it would use the info in tdbsam.
