the samba profile settings??

i've got:
   comment = Users profiles
   path = /home/samba/profiles/%U/%U.pds
   browseable = no
   profile acls = yes

   comment = Users profiles for Vista and Windows 7

   browseable = no
   profile acls = yes

but nothing is in those directories in /home/samba/. global settings

profile settings? or can i do it somewhere else? i try and add the
domain to the group policy management tool and it says domain cannot be
