i do appreciate your help with this..
according to manpages.
profile acls (S)
This boolean parameter was added to fix the problems that
have been having with storing user profiles on Samba shares
Windows 2000 or Windows XP clients. New versions of Windows
or Windows XP service packs do security ACL checking
i have only xp clients running newest service packs, when i set profile
acls to no, it gives me an error message about not being able to download
777 is very insecure that means that all users on the system can over
write anyones profile
my problem is not that the profiles can not write to the server, changes
to the profile do get saved, its just they don't get saved to the server
on more then one system.
