Samba PDC Permissions

I just followed this guide to setup a Samba PDC for freebsd:

I can join domain and login via windows XP. The only problem is that when I login with Windows XP, I get an error message saying that it can't create/retreive a profile from the PDC. So basicly nothing will get saved on my server. I set permissions this way and that and I am all out of ideas. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Are the folders created?

With what permissions?

ls -l /var/spool/samba/profiles/*


total 12
drwx------ 16 david david 4096 Mar 1 2004 david

My config file has this for profile path..
logon path = \\%L\Profiles\nt\%U
logon home = \\%L\Profiles\98\%U

and this...

path = /var/spool/samba/profiles
read only = No
create mask = 0600
directory mask = 0700
browseable = No
