net user

I have the following entries, among others, in my smb.conf file:

===== cut here =====

	logon path = \\%L\profiles\%U

	comment = User Profiles
	path = /usr/home/profiles
	public = yes
	writable = yes
	browseable = yes 

===== cut here =====

So, I expect 'net use z: /home' on a win95 machine to map z: to

However, it maps z: to /usr/home/profiles, with the subdirectories of all
users available to everyone whoever does 'net use z: /home'.

How does mapping after 'net use /home' depend upon the 'logon path'

What could I be doing wrong?

Thanks a lot for any input.
