No, not at all.  Samba has nothing to do with NTConfig.Pol - but MS Windows 
NT, 2000 and XP Professional do support it.  MS Windows Vista does not 
support it.

Samba does not run the login script, the client does. You can run any Windows 
BAT or CMD file as the logon script.

Now that I have said that Samba does not support NTConfig.Pol, and that it 
does not execute the logon script, it is necessary to correctly configure 
Samab so that the client can process them correctly. Suggest you follow the 
Samba3-ByExample book for examples on how to do that.
