Greeting Milan Andric,

  Yes Samba support local profile. For using local profile with Samba 3, 
be sure to not have set /SambaProfilePath /and /sambaHomePath/ in 
/global/ section/. /To not have trouble with Windows professional client 
2000/XP (I don't have try local profile with 9x clients), open /MMC /and 
add the snap-in /Group Policy/.

Browse in /Local Computer Policy/ / /Computer Configuration/ / 
Administrative Template / /System // /Login
and change //Only allow local user profiles/ value. For Windows 2000, 
you need SP3 and more install.

And run /secedit /refreshpolicy machine_policy (W2K) or //gpupdate (XP)./
