[Samba] Fwd: roaming profile contents

The profile is usually C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\NTUSER.DAT
With roaming profiles, you identify the location of this file with
various [NETLOGON] and [GLOBAL] settings. It is copied into the
C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\NTUSER.DAT on login and copied back
to the server location on logout. Everything else can be redirected.
Profiles can be shared between NT and Win2K. I don't know about XP. If
you have users who move between different architectures, you can use the
%a variable to identify the OS and select the appropriate profile to load.
I hope that is close.
