samba logon script win xp

I'm running samba-2.2.8a on my RH7.3 as a PDC domain controller, which is working fine, but I'm having problems getting my logon script to map network drives automatically work on my windows XP client .

The smb.conf file is as follows;

# Samba config file created using SWAT
# from (
# Date: 2003/06/28 08:11:58

# Global parameters
netbios name = alinghi
workgroup = POLECAT
;server string = Samba Server on Alinghi
encrypt passwords = yes
wins support = yes
domain master = yes
local master = yes
preferred master = yes
os level = 65

security = user
domain logons = yes

;passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
;passwd chat = *New*UNIX*password* %n\n *ReType*new*UNIX*password* %n\n *passwd:*all*authentication*tokens*updated*successfully*
;unix password sync = yes
log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
;dns proxy = no
;hosts allow = 192.168.100.
;printing = lprng

logon path = \\%L\profiles\%u\%m
logon home = \\%L\%u\.win_profile\%m
logon script = logon.bat

logon drive = H:
time server = yes

domain admin group = root brice

;add user script = /usr/sbin/useradd -d /dev/null -g 100 -s /bin/false -M %u

path = /usr/local/samba/lib/netlogon
writeable = no
browsable = no

path = /home/samba-ntprof
browsable = no
writable = yes
create mask = 0600
directory mask = 0700

comment = Home Directories
valid users = %S
writable = yes
read only = No
create mask = 0664
directory mask = 0775
browseable = No

comment = All Printers
path = /var/spool/samba
printable = Yes
browseable = No


logon.bat script is as follows;

@echo off

NET TIME \\alinghi /SET /YES



As always any assistance would be appreciated

tried to execute the logon.bat script on the windows xp box and got the following messages;

"users directory has not been specified"

current time at \\alinghi is 1/16/2003 5.59pm

local time at \\alinghi is 7/16/2003 12.59 pm

and I get a confirmation that the script executed successfully??

I also have the problem of that the xp box gets set to the current time which should have been 12.59pm, as in the local time, not 5.59pm ???

My logon script are a bit different:

net time \\server /set /yes
net use u: \\server\public

so if you want to map a unit for home's dir

net use z: \\server\home\%u

For "net time" is maybe possible that the xp machines are set to obtain the time by a time server (this setting is on time settings in control panel)?

I hope what I say is ok and an help for you...excuse me for poor english.
