Hi, For the profile problems. 

This is my working config.

in the smb.conf
(global setting ) 
        logon script = logon.cmd
        logon home = \\%L\%U
        logon path = \\%L\profiles\%U
        logon drive = P:


        path = /home/samba/profiles
        comment = Profiel omgeving
        read only = no
        create mask = 0600
        directory mask = 0700
## browseable = yes can be no also, but i need it to be browsable.
## if you want it browsable but not shown, add a $ behind [profiles$] 
## and same in the logon path above.
        browseable = Yes
        guest ok = Yes
        csc policy = disable 
        # next line is a great way to secure the profiles
        force user = %U
        # next line allows administrator to access all profiles
        valid users = %U @"Domain Admins"

when this is done. 

add 2 registry keys.
; do not roam the following folders
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
"ExcludeProfileDirs"="Temporary Internet Files;History;Temp"

; force Windows XP Professional clients to accept Samba as a PDC

; Do not check for user ownership of Roaming Profile Folders

this wil work, and many thanks for who help me out some time ago ;-)
