smb.conf (logon path / problems with profiles))


I'm running SuSE 9.0 with Samba 3.0.2a as a PDC. with Windows XP client machines.
I configured smb.conf and everything but the Windows profiles seem to work fine. I think it's just a little problem with the paths, but I just can't figure out which are the right ones. I think it's probably only "logon path" which is troubling me...
Can anyone help with the right pathes / variables? The profiles are supposed to be located in /home/username/profile. Following is an excerpt of smb.conf (but full global, homes, Profiles, netlogon shares).

Thanks for all hints and solutions!!!
