Please note that the Samba 2 series is considered obsolete and no longer
supported. The documentation for Samba 3 should be roughly similar. Be
aware that there are many pitfalls when using roaming profiles:
workstations should be very similar if not identical in setup and
software; Outlook Express kills roaming profiles; learn how to redirect
certain paths to network drives so they don't need to be sync'd with
roaming profiles; etc.

When you upgrade to Samba 3, you will find this documented in the The
Official Samba-3 HOWTO and Reference Guide,

The section you will wish to read is Chapter 26 (Desktop Profile

Next time, PLEASE read the fine manual before posting a question with
well-documented answers. We won't do your homework for you.
