Likewise. I have OS X 10.3.9 and I created com.apple.desktopservices.plist in the system and user preferences folders (/Library/Preferences and ~/Library/Preferences). I rebooted and verified the setting using the command you posted.

Apple's advice simply does not work for me, either. I still get .DS_store files all over the place on the SMB share I use.
