[Samba] Samba PDC windows XP logon scripts

Server:	Debian etch (kernel 2.6.18-4-686)
	Samba 3.0.24 (PDC)

Workstations: Windows XP Pro SP2 fully updated

I want to have my windows xp users to login locally to their machine, but  
still have them automaticly check the netlogon share or something like  
that to apply network mappings and policies per group or user.

I have this working when the user logs onto the domain. He gets a profile  
(which i keep local through gpedit.msc). I also know of a way to apply all  
those things locally to every machine, but obviously i want to have this  
another way.

Domain login could be ok if it's a new user, but i'm talking about +- 50  
workstations with local profiles already in use. And it would be the best  
to manage them centrally via the server.

Anyway to apply this some way?

I've been searching a lot, and it seems to me at the moment i have to  
change everything to every workstations (policy and network drive mapping)  
without having to do a lot of jiggling locally with their profiles.

I rather don't.

I guess i'm not the only one who encountered this problem.
Any suggestions would be very welcome.

Thx for reading,
