using samba v3 windows xp sp2 clients.
i have profiles working to some extent, that is when i create a new user
on the server, when that user logs in, the profile gets downloaded from
the server from the /etc/netlogon/default user directory.
any customizations that the user makes work just fine and get saved to the
profiles share under profiles/username
when the user tries to go to a different machine the settings and such do
not get downloaded from the server.
it is only when the user logs into the first system do the changes come
back are visible.
any ideas?
 here are the sections for profiles from the smb.conf

logon path = \\%L\profiles\%U
        logon drive = G:
        logon home = \\%L\%U

        path = /profiles/
        dos file mode = Yes
        read only = No
        writable = yes
        create mode = 0600
        directory mode = 0700
        browseable = yes
        profile acls = yes
