[Samba] Vista roaming profiles...

Hi everybody,

after many weeks of searching/trying, I still can't manage to get vista to use/save roaming profiles with samba as PDC...
It has apparently worked a few times in the beginning since the profiles directories are populated.
Could it be related to a Vista update or SP1?
Here's what I did so far:


    path = /home/samba/
    browseable = yes
    writable = yes
    create mode = 0600 
    directory mask = 0700
    csc policy = disable
    nt acl support = no
    read only = no

  copy = Profiles

Created /home/samba/<user>.V2 directories...

I have three questions:
1. Anything to fix/improve in my confs?
2. Do you know a good howto for Vista and samba?
3. If I fix the issue, is there a possibility of overwriting my users recent local profiles with the old server profiles?   Should I empty the profiles directories first?
