You may set the logon path to the central share.  I wrote a VFS module
that fakes up the permissions required, call vfs_fake_perms.so, which is
built with Samba 3.0.  There is also an option 'profile acls' in the
smb.conf.  Use one or the other on the share that holds the *mandetory
profile only*, otherwise you will have problems reading the profile to
the client.
