Hi again,

I have found this:


In smb.conf

Affect the following settings and ALL clients will be forced to use a local
profile: logon home =
path =

The arguments to these parameters must be left blank. It is necessary to
include the = sign to specifically assign the empty value.

Anyone can confirm that this is right? can I have problems with existing
