ok. thank you

the permissions is right (700 with owner <user>.<user>
the users can export the profile from win98, my problem is that they
can't import the roaming profile when make login in another machine...
I read in somewhere that win98 can't deal correctly with roaming profiles...
I wish to know if someone is working with win98 roaming profile,
importing the profile when logins in the first time...
