[Samba] mandatory profiles

I am running samba 3.0 on fc2 in a win2000 network.

I want to use only mandatory profiles in the network, but can't get this to 
work properly. I have set up a "perfect user" on my local machine", and 
copied this profile to \\server\netlogon\Default User. I have also made this 
default profile mandatory by renaming ntuser.dat to ntuser.man.

In smb.conf I have added: logon path = \\%L\profiles\%u

Everything seems to work perfectly, and new users that log on get their 
profiles from \\server\netlogon\Default User - but the new users are not 
mandatory!!! In \\%L\profiles\%u I can see that the new users get a new 
ntuser.dat (and it is supposed to be ntuser.man!!).

How can I force the new users to be mandatory?? I thought it would be enough 
when the Default User was mandatory - obviously it was'nt.

I'll appreciate all help and hints!

Thanks a lot!
