As describes in the part 23.1 of the samba documentation, if i were you i 
change the default keys of the windows 's registrery. I will change %
USERPROFILE% to somethink like "\\yoursambaserver\yourprofiles_dir\%username

AppData %USERPROFILE%\Application Data
Desktop %USERPROFILE%\Desktop
Favorites %USERPROFILE%\Favorites
PrintHood %USERPROFILE%\PrintHood
Programs %USERPROFILE%\Start Menu\Programs
Recent %USERPROFILE%\Recent
Start Menu  %USERPROFILE%\Start Menu
Startup %USERPROFILE%\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
