You don't need the %a (if it's only to separate Vista from other versions)
Vista adds a ".V2" to the profile path
an user profile reside in \\PDC\Profiles\username.v2 for vista
and in \\PDC\Profiles\username for XP
Vista seems to work satisfactorily with a samba PDC.
the logon time is higher than with XP but everything we tested worked.
(We don't use Vista in production and didn't discovered the probably
relevant parts of our smb.conf:
domain logons = yes
logon drive = h:
logon home = \\%L\%U
logon path = \\%L\Profiles\%U
path = /export/Profiles
comment = Roaming Profile Share
profile acls = Yes
create mode = 0600
directory mode = 0700
read only = no
browseable = no
csc policy = disable
hide files = /?esktop.ini/
