Samba, WinVista and Roaming Profiles

I hope my question isn't too off-topic for this list, but usually 
some people come up with good ideas ...

We have got a FreeBSD Samba Server (set up as PDC) and about 100 
WinXP desktops and laptops. The WinXP machines can log into the 
network, connect to home directories and shares and download 
(roaming) profiles. Everything works fine with them.

Now we have purchased 2 new WinVista desktops. Login and shares 
work all right, but they can't download the profiles. They will 
deliver an error message saying they lack appropriate permissions.

Any idea what is happening there?

Thanks for your help and greetings,
