Well i must say, it looks like the removal
of the profile list works. !

but the mentioning of the nt4 policy's not working with vista
was a big bummer...

isn't there an otherway to make policy's work with vista ??
like adding the SYSVOL share orso ??
or using the policy editor of xp/vista in combination with samba.

Thx, Collen

ps for the maillist admin: i get a lot of duplicate mail's from the 
samba list.
