I think there are a couple solutions to this..I went through it myself..
samba side: you can set the /etc/samba/smb.conf
login path =
login home =
or, on the XP side use gpedit.msc and change
ENABLE 'use local profiles only'
I dont remeber the exact key path, but I made a post of it monday of last
week when I went through this as well. dejanews microsoft.public for
'disable romaing profiles xp'
