You know you may have a point.  It's been a couple of years, but I
think the two accounts originally started out as local accounts.  I
don't remember how I moved them to the Samba server, if I did a
straight copy of the directory over the network or if I used the
"System Properties/.../User Profiles" mechanism.  Any idea how I can
fix that, or how I can properly re-create NTUSER.DAT?
