| What is the trick for having home directories on a samba share be
| accessible from a windows machine??
| I am using winbind with NT to authenticate -- it works fine.  I have users
| with accounts on the samba machine, they have the same usernames and
| passwords on the NT machine.  All users on the samba machine have accounts
| in /home   Is there some sort of trick with the template homedir command,
| and maybe with the allowed users in the homes share??

Except they are not the same usernames. Your system will see the
usernames as GPREP+username, instead of username (for example if you run
'getent passwd'.

This is the ideal application of 'winbind use default domain = yes',
which is available since 2.2.4.
