Setup for access on two different networks [notspam]

I'm configuring an NTrigue server to mount home directories from two separate
networks, connected by a multi-homed gateeway (which has two Ethernet
interfaces). The Samba server is installed on the multi-homed, Sparc Solaris
machine. The multi-homed machine serves two networks: net38 and net39. Under
Unix, home directories on net39 cannot be mounted on net38; home directories
from net38 can be mounted on net39. The configuration looks like this:

; Configuration file for smbd.
; ============================================================================
   config file = /usr/local/lib/smb.conf
   domain master = yes
   workgroup = GRAFNET
   os level = 30
   domain logons = yes
   logon script = %U.bat
   protocol = NT1
   case sensitive = no
   preserve case = yes
   short preserve case = yes
   printing = bsd
   load printers = yes
   guest account = samba
   printcap name = /usr/local/lib/smb-printcap
   log file = /usr/local/var/adm/samba/log.%m
   lock directory = /usr/local/var/adm/samba/locks
   share modes = yes
   server string = Solaris Samba Server %v
   interfaces =
   remote announce =

   path = /usr/local/netlogon
   writable = yes
   guest ok = yes

   comment = Home Directory
   browseable = yes
   read only = no
   create mode = 0750

   path = /tmp
   comment = All Printers
   browseable = yes
   printable = yes
   public = yes
   writable = no
   create mode = 0700

   comment = Temporary file space
   path = /tmp
   read only = no
   public = yes

The NTrigue PC is on the 39 network. I want to allow users from the 39 network
to mount their home directories on the PC. But for some reason, it can't. 

Can't change directory to /home/user (No such file or directory)

The reason is that "user" is not known on the 38 network so the home directory
cannot be mounted (even on Unix). How can I enable this? Do I have to install
another samba server on the 39 network? Or  can I get by just by fiddling some
of the configuration parameters?

I'm, pretty much in a bind and I must find a way to make this work over the
weekend. If anyone has done something similar and has some useful tiips for
me,I'd appreciate hearing from you.

Thank you for your help.
