samba [profiles] acces denied

I have configured Samba as a PDC for a winXP network. The problem is users cannot access [profiles] share. Here I paste what I think is relevant:

*********** smb.conf ***************
comment = Users profiles
path = /home/samba/profiles
guest ok = no
read only = no
printable = no
create mask = 0600
directory mask = 0700
writeable = yes
write list = @users
browseable = yes
create mode = 0600
directory mode = 0700
force group = users
valid users = %U,@users

************ client log ****************
[2009/03/08 14:30:04, 0] smbd/service.c:make_connection_snum(1003)
'/home/samba/profiles' does not exist or permission denied when connecting to [profiles] Error was Permission denied

*********** filesystem *****************
/home/samba# ls -l
total 16
drwxr-xr-x 5 root users 4096 2009-03-08 10:43 netlogon
drwxrwxrwx 11 root root 4096 2009-03-08 14:31 profiles

What distro are you running?

Can you also post

ls -lZ /home/samba
