accessing XP roaming profile

How are you ?
I've installed samba-3.0.7 from source on a Slackware Linux 10.0 server
configured with "--with-ldap" as a backend (OpenLDAP-2.2.13) and with
nss_ldap installed. I have my profiles share configured as follows:
comment = Profile Share
path = /data/profiles
writeable = yes
guest ok = yes
browseable = no
profile acls = yes
csc policy = disable
Permissions on a user's profile folder:
drwxrwxr-x 12 pupil Domain Admins 424 2004-10-14 13:46 pupil
Most of the time logins from Windows X.P. (SP1) PCs work perfectly and
the roaming profile comes across, however sometimes an error "Cannot
access roaming profile.... ... ... .. network name cannot be found"
The error is intermittent and does not seem to stick to any sort of
pattern. I've looked all over and found that other people have
experienced the same problem but I can't seem to find a solid fix for it.
Perhaps installing X.P. Service Pack 2 will sort it out ?
Can anyone point me in the right direction on how I can resolve this
Thank you for your time.
