i did verify that the profile was in fact a roaming profile
the profile downloads just fine from the system that we first logon too
with that user.
any changes made with the same user on the original system do get saved to
the server, i had a look in the /profiles/user name/Desktop directory for
files we placed on the desktop after logging off, the files are on the
when we go to another machine configured exactly the same way log on as
that same user not does the profile not load but what looks like a local
xp profile loads.
i also tried making a new user on the smb box logging on with the same
system which was displaying the wrong profile, and it woks fine, as long
as the profile gets downloaded from the same system that it initially
worked on, it seems to work fine.
i am stumped.
