| If you haven't a lot of profiles (or users), you can fix this problem by
| manual edit the registry. I don't know if it really works, because I had
| to do this after a Win NT4 to Win2k migration, but maybe it work in your
| case too:
| -Log on with the new SID
| -Now you will find an additional folder in the "Documents and Settings"
| folder containing the user- and domain name (an maybe other character)
| -log out, and login in with the local administrator account
| -open regedit and move to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows
| NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList
| -you will find several entry's named by SID's
| -Find the entry from the new user which was created as you logged in
| before (you recognize it by the ProfileImagePath-Value)
| -Change this Value to the old profile path
| -You may have to restart the computer now and it should work
| Regards, Marco.
You could also try the profiles tool which comes with samba, it is able
to change the sids.

Good Luck!
