[Samba] Vista - Profile - Local

Hi everyone,

Thank you for reading my post, here is my problem.
In my network, there are:
- a "Samba" server, acting as a domain controller,
- a laptop running "Windows Vista Business".

- the laptop hostname is "anthracite",
- the server hostname is "chrome",
- and the "Samba" domain name is "iode".

I may log in my system as:
- "anthracite\lmhelp"
- or as "iode\lmhelp".

I want to use the same "Windows" PROFILE in both cases.
And I want that profile to be a LOCAL one (not a ROAMING one).

When I log as "anthracite\lmhelp", I am already using a local profile, say
I want "P" to be my profile when I log as "iode\lmhelp".

With "Windows XP", I knew how to set up things.

Now, with "Vista", when I go to:
"Control Panel -> System -> Advanced -> User Profiles, Settings"
The "iode\lmhelp" profile type is "Roaming".
The "Local profile" radio button is uncheckable.

When I go to the registry:
"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> SOFTWARE -> Microsoft -> Windows NT -> CurrentVersion
-> ProfileList"
I have the following profile:

CentralProfile            \\chrome\lmhelp\profile.V2
Flags                       0
ProfileImagePath        C:\Users\TEMP.IODE
ProfileLoadTimeHigh    0
ProfileLoadTimeLow    0
RefCount                  2
Sid                          01 05 00 00 00 00 00 05 15 00 00 00 dc fc D4 a9
3f d8 72 46 ff df f0 49 d0 0b 00 00
State                      0x00000a04 (2564)

If I set the flag "State" to 0x0 then I can check the
"Local profile" radio button in the "User Profiles" settings.
But it is not taken into account.
When I leave and go back to it, the profile type it is set to "Roaming
profile" again.

Can you help me solve my problem?
Thanks in advance,
