I have this problem...
I am working on implimenting a school network. I have two kinds of users on my network: students and facutly. I have also two types of operating system on my network: win 98 and win XPP. 
Here is the rights and privilages I am thinking about giving my users
Students (usage only in computer labs):
- limited roaming profile (basically, deny desktop roaming profile)
- give them access to some network devices: printers and file servers.
Faculty (usage in offices):
- give them access to network devices: mainly file servers
- keep profile on local computers (I am afraid roaming profile will take long authentication time as a result of loading profiles)    
How can I address this issue, especially for Faculty. I don't want the samba PDC to interfere with whatever they have on their local computer.
