You need to create a share for EACH HOME DIRECTORY. It's a pain, but you share
the directory and map each user to their home directory individually. In Samba
2.x, there are some example smb.conf files in /usr/doc/samba-2.0.x (on Linux,
I'm not sure where the hide on other systems), where the 2.0.x is the version
of samba you are using. One of these examples has a method of keeping the load
small while having a lot of shares. I think it's one by Andrew "O Mighty"
Tridgell. Worth looking at.
