Is the Samba server a domain controler?

If so, you are now loging in as a domain user. Look at the "Documents 
and Settings" folder on your Windows computer. If your user name is USER 
and your domain is called DOMAIN, you will now see a folder named USER 
and another one named USER.DOMAIN. The first one contains your former 
local profile and the new one contains your domain profile.

If you want to use the same profile, you must copy it to the server. 
Please search for "Roaming profiles" and "Folder redirection".

Excuse me for not being more specific but I just don't have the 
necessary time now.
