samba pdc roaming profiles help

Hello all, i use a samba 3.0.14a pdc with roaming profiles support and clients are winxp pro. As microsoft writes, profiles are copied locally when user logs in and merged and updated back to server when user logs out. I want when the user logs in not to copy the profile but use it *directly* from the server. e.g: When i touch a file from the shell, this file to appear immediatelly in the user's desktop. (supposing i am typing this in the user's desktop directory). my smb.conf follows:
netbios name = redhat
server string = Samba %v on %L
workgroup = net2day
os level = 65
prefered master = yes
domain master = yes
local master = yes
domain logons = yes
time server = yes
hide dot files = yes
client code page = 852
character set = ISO8859-2
security = user
guest ok = no
invalid users = bin deamon sys man postfix mail ftp
admin users = @wheel
logon drive = H:
logon home = \\redhat\%u
domain admin group = @wheel
encrypt passwords = yes
log level = 2
log file = /var/log/samba/log.%L
max log size = 1000
debug timestamp = yes
syslog = 1
logon path = \\%N\profiles\%u

logon script = logon.bat
csc policy = disable
add user script = /usr/sbin/useradd -d /dev/null -g 100 -s /bin/false -M %u
path = /home/samba/netlogon
public = no
writeable = no
browsable = no
valid users = root @smbusers
path = /home/samba/profiles/
writeable = yes
create mask = 0700
directory mask = 0700
browsable = no
comment = public
path = /home/public
browseable = yes
public = yes
guest ok = yes
writeable = yes

Any help appreciated
ps: sorry for my poor english not my native

Yes you can do this!

Look up "Folder Redirection" in .

That'll be what your looking for. To give a demo, Right-Click My Documents on the Desktop, And that should give you some idea of what I'm talking about......"Target Folder Location" is what you want. It's pretty easy to do from there .
