I don't know if [%U] works. [homes] should give the same effect.
For what you are trying to do, use
security = user
instead of "share". Also, you will need
encrypt passwords = no
so Samba can use /etc/passwd passwords. (This might or might not be
the default, I can't remember.) Finally, in order to use unencrypted
passwords, you must apply the registry hack to all your NT machines (at
least for NT4SP3 and above). The .reg file is in the docs/ directory
-- apply the file using the "import" function of REGEDIT.EXE.
For details on that last bit, read docs/textdocs/ENCRYPTION.txt (or
wherever ENCRYPTION.txt is in your Samba version).
