You have to read the DOMAINS.txt included in 2.0.7.

Yes, win9x just sees one parameter (either logon path or logon home).
Before 2.0.6 samba would pass to win9x the "logon path" parameter, since
2.0.6 "logon home" is used. Win9x cannot have both profiles outside of
the homeshare and net use /home working at the same time.
See 2.0.7 DOMAIN.txt and man smb.conf for details.
