I've just checked this command with both old and new users

  smbclient -W $DOMAIN -U $USER //$PDC/$HOME

And the result of both old and new users succeed.
I've just added a new Windows XP PC to  the domain.
The strange thing is:

   1. I *can* logon to *new users* on *new* machines, and do whatever I want
   with the account.
   2. I *can* logon to *old users* on *new* machines, but I cannot change
   desktop settings (like display "My Documents" on desktop).
   3. I *cannot* logon to *new users* on *old* machines

What should I check?
