having a few troubles with samba profile directories.

im using a windows server 2008 r2 server as a remote desktop server so the
terminals connect over RDP, the windows box is then authenticating against a
samba pdc. to begin with profiles just were not working so i tried a few
different options in smb.conf and stumbled across one that worked... heres my
smb.conf - http://pastebin.com/Kcssv9Vp

but its creating the profiles in the users home directory in a directory called
profile.V2, takes a long time to log in as it is waiting for the profile
service, as it does when logging out.

the profile is also ending up in C:\users on the windows box, (is this
avaoidable? i thought it would start to fill up the relatively small harddrive
space i gave to the windows vm as opposed to the samba vm).

when logged in to a user account on windows, all the other users home
directories are showing up in network places, so it look a bit of a mess when i
just want a couple of central shared directories.

any advice on any of the above?
