Anything that works will suit me at them moment.  Do you have a write
up of what steps you followed for the 10.3 arrangement?

What bothers me is that the users share gets created as expected but
that the profile share does not.  Due to my lack of experience with AD
I do not understand why the set up for the two shares differ on the
Samba wiki or what the implications of the differences are.
