in my samba I am trying to share my home directories.  I have done this in the past and it worked correctly.  On 
this install I get.

\\LINUX\%U is not accessible the share name was not found!
be sure you typed correctley.

my smb.conf looks like this 

	workgroup = 1 
	encrypt passwords = Yes
	hosts allow 192.168.0.

	comment = public files
	path = /mnt/public
	read only = No

	comment = home directories
	path = /home/%U
	read only = No
        browseable = No

Please let me know what I forgot!
