I'm using a Win98 box to connect to a samba server, is there an =
alternative to:

logon path =3D \\box\Profiles\%U

which would allow me to set my roaming profiles into another directory =
other than home (if I was using NT)?

I understand I could use

logon home =3D xxxxx

to set the profile directory, however my logon.bat netlogon script =
wouldn't be able to map /home to the users individual home directories, =
and I would need a seperate user.bat file for each user, which is =
annoying.
