YES... I have checked all directory ownership/permissions a zillion
I have only tried those two different settings for 'logon path' on
my XP laptop.
I THINK the "problem" has something todo with the fact? that XP will
shorten the 'logon path' from \\%L\%U\.msprofile to just \\%L\%U,
and then, that will match the home directory field in /etc/passwd.
So, it (Samba) changes or passes info to XP that causes the three
DOS variables to be set differently.
And, the properties on the "Command Prompt" link in XP has
'%HOMEDRIVE%%HOMEPATH%' in the "Start in" properties field. So,
that is why the different results.
These variables are set when 'logon path' = \\%L\%U\.msprofile
These variables are set when 'logon path' = \\%L\profiles\%U\%m
HOMEPATH=\Documents and Settings\flinchlock
