I've just edited smb.conf to make it a PDC on my SuSE 9.1 machine.  I 
can add other machines to the domain but when I try to log on, I get the 
message "Windows cannot locate your roaming profile...blah blah"  My 
config file is below.

# smb.conf is the main Samba configuration file. You find a full commented
# version at /usr/share/doc/packages/samba/examples/smb.conf.SuSE
# Date: 2004-04-06
   workgroup = TranFamily
   os level = 64
   passdb backend = smbpasswd
   interfaces = eth0
   bind interfaces only = true
   printing = cups
   printcap name = cups
   printer admin = @ntadmin, root, administrator
   map to guest = Bad User
   security = user
   encrypt passwords = yes
   server string = Samba
   netbios name = dragonite
   add machine script =
   domain master = yes
   domain logons = yes
   local master = yes
   preferred master = yes
   logon path = \\%N\profiles\%u
   logon drive = H:
   logon home = \\homeserver\%u
   logon script = logon.cmd
   ldap suffix = dc=example,dc=com

    path = /usr/local/samba/lib/netlogon
    read only = yes
    write list = ntadmin

    path = /export/smb/ntprofile
    read only = no
    create mask = 0600
    directory mask = 0700

The local log in and the domain log in usernames are different.  I 
created the directory /export/smb/ntprofile as root but change mod to 
777.  Beside that, I haven't done much else.  Can someone please help?  
Thank you.
