I'm not sure :/

Theres only 1 windows box, and the clients connect to it via RDP. So
does that need roaming profiles?? Does it always have to create the
users profile in C:\users ??

The profiles directory, profile.V2 doesn't seem to be where i thought it
would be, ie whats in the smb.conf. 

Everyones home directory showing up in network places as a share is also
a bit of a mess, and I'm not sure why they are showing up there.
