[Samba] Roaming profiles not roamin :(

Hello folks!

I have a "small" problem configuring samba-3.0.9 (on Debian, if that
matters). My samba server acts like primary domain controller, and my
users can log to the domain. But, their profiles are not roaming (yes,
those users have roaming profile selected on every workstation, that's
not it). That is - they are not created on samba machine, but instead,
on every workstation I have c:\documents and settings\username.domain,
with all their data. As you can imagine, that's not what I want. Btw,
workstations are running WindowsXP SP2.

Here is my smb.conf:

        workgroup = zbor
        netbios name = callisto
        server string = callisto
        encrypt passwords = yes
        passdb backend = smbpasswd
        domain master = yes
        local master = yes
        preferred master = yes
        os level = 65
        security = user
        domain logons = yes
        time server = yes
        logon drive = x:
        logon path = \\%L\profiles\%u
        logon script = logon.bat
        wins support = yes

        comment = Logon Service
        path = /home/samba/netlogon
        admin users = root, mosor
        writable = no
        browsable = no

        comment = Roamin Profile Share
        path = /home/xp-profile
        browseable = no
        writeable = yes
        create mask = 0600
        directory mask = 0700

Any ideas will be greatly appreciated :).
