So you are "cheating": in the PDC  samba conf you say that "homes" and
"profiles" are in a directory of the PDC, but the directory is not
phisically there, it is a nfs mount on another server right? Very good idea

I do not understand the part about the ldap configuration, can you please
explain it better: what can you do with ldap??

Thanks you very much!!!
