The simplest solution that comes to my mind instantly is to cut out
the [homes] section and create other named [home] or something
similiar. Then use 'path = /home/%U' to make homedirs available in
this way.
Seems quite easy, so I'm not sure whether it's what you have asked.

I guess better place to ask such question is samba at
