[Samba] Automatically Creating User Home Directories

        There is a way to do this via PAM on Linux.  If you add the
following line to /etc/pam.d/system-auth file: 

session     sufficient    /lib/security/pam_mkhomedir.so skel=/etc/skel

this will automatically create a skeleton home directory the first time
a user logs on to the system.

Hi all, 

A quick question here.  How can I get my RHL 7.2 box running Samba
connecting to a Windows 2000 PDC via Winbind to automatically create
directories for new users that get added to the Windows 2000 PDC? 

Hopefully someone can help me with this question.
