Oliver >>> The profile is on a permanently mounted samba share (via 
fstab) that already handles my thunderbird profile and mail folders, as 
well as Firefox 2 bookmarks file.  It's just FF3 that doesn't work - 
probably because of the way FF3's sqlite files interact with the 
samba/FAT32 lack of proper *nix permissions.
