You never answered this question.  You don't need to have anything
there, because it defaults to "\\%N\%U\profile", but if you do have
something there, what is it?

Are you sure you have actually activated domain logins?  It is possible
that you have simply set up a stand-alone file server.  For the PDC to
be working properly, you need 

	security = user
        domain master = yes
        domain logons = yes


A problem shared brings the consolation that someone else is now
feeling as miserable as you.
