Or not since admin users = newuser2, which lets the account work as
root. Is that normal behavior?

What bothers me the most is the fact that out of 5 newusers I have created, on
2 of them the roaming profiles has created properly but it won't for
the rest. With no special order.
Second. Is there a reason I can't delete Icons on the desktop on
windows xp. It tells me access denied.
Are there any manual tests i can do to check on the profile status?
Is there a domain users group that i maybe should create in samba or anywhere?
