samba as PDC RH9

Hi i have finally managed to configure samba to run smoothly as a pdc for my network of 98 machines however i have one small problem.

i am trying to use the module to create the users home directory on the fly at firt login and set the permissions for the folder and sub folders to owner 'user) group 'users group; rwx

heres what ive done

firstly i created a folder with full rwx for all users /samba/skel
my profiles for windows users are stored in /samba/profiles/%U

in the /samba/skel folder i have placed a windows profile to be copied to the users home directory upon creation.

to my smb.conf file in the globals part i have added the line template homedir = /samba/profiles/%U does this have to be in a certain place within the globals??? do i need to add any winbind lines????

to my /etc/pam.d/samba file i have added at the top of the session section

session required skel=/samba/skel umask=0022

now i create a user on the linux platform as normal and create the same user within the samba server.

when i then log on from the 98 client using this name / password the logon is denied bad name / password

however if i create users in exactly the same way but do not ad the lines to the samba and smb.conf file then create the directory manually in /samba/profiles all it well

this is driving me insane now if anybody could show me the error of my ways i would be mose grateful :-)

many thanks
