Well the roaming profiles are copied to the host machine when a user logson and back again when they log off. You can use policy to redirect some of the profile folders like my doc desktop and app data live on the server to make the profile significantly smaller.

Also enforcing deleting roaming profiles in policy will remove the profile at logoff too

so no matter where i have my profile dirs on samba, they always have to
be on the windows C: drive as well? 

i set the server up with a relatively small windows partition and a big
samba partition thinking all the user data and shared data could go on
the samba partition. as it stands user data is filling my windows
partition up.
