Samba PDC/WinXP Roaming profile
I've done a search and seen some similar threads but I did not see a fix, at least I did not see it.

I have fedora core 4 running with Samba 3.0.14a-2. I can get the XP workstation to join the Samba PDC, but when I try to log in, I get the "Windows could not locate a server copy of your roaming profile........... DETAIL - The network name cannot be found"

I created the /home/netlogon and /home/profiles directory. I also copied the Default User folder from Windows to the netlogon directory. I made the directory /home/profiles/snkcore (the username I am attempting to use) Onced logged in with the TEMP profile for snkcore. I can browse my network neigbourhood and see the PDC (\\fedora)

Here's a copy of the smb.conf file.
workgroup = linux
netbios name = fedora
encrypt passwords = yes

domain master = yes
local master = yes
preferred master = yes
os level = 65

security = user
domain logons = yes

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

# logon drive = X:
# logon home = \\%L\home\%u

time server = yes

path = /home/netlogon
writeable = no
browsable = no
create mask = 0600
directory mask = 0700

path = /home/profiles
browsable = no
writeable = yes
default case = no
short preserve case = no
case sensitive = no
hide files = /desktop.ini/ntuser.ini/NTUSER.*/
write list = @smbuser @root
create mask = 0600
directory mask = 0700

read only = no
browsable = no
guest ok = no
map archive = yes

If you need anymore information, let me know so I can resolve this.
