Thanks Jerry. That worked perfectly... but now I've got a _privacy_  
issue: all users are able to read and write in each other's profiles.

The problem is that currently, if a user testuser starts \\PDC, he  
finds two shares, the Printers/Faxes and himself, a share called  
testuser. If he selects this share, he finds *all* the user home  
directories, and can go into the profile folder and do whatever they  
want. To ensure that I have all the profiles belonging to  
smbadmin:Domain Users I use ``force user = smbadmin'' in the profile  
share section.

Is there a way to avoid this behavior?
