normally, they don't have read nor write access to any folder in 
c:\Documents and Settings\ (other than the one belonging to them).

so perhaps you something went wrong when you installed the workstation?

since Samba doesn't have GPO / group policy, there is no way to change 
permissions on the workstations only with Samba.

you could do it with WPKG though - http://wpkg.org - just execute a 
script and change c:\Documents and Settings acls on specified workstations.
