[Samba] Another winbind question (hopefully easy one)

I setup SAMBA to use winbind to authenticate of a WinNT PDC

In the smb.conf I have a line
template homedir = /home/winnt/%U 
which is file

I also use the pam module to create directories for
new users
pam_mkhomedir.so skel=/etc/sambaskel umask=0077

which is fine again.

My problem is that I can't tell or how do I tell pam_mkhomedir
to create the directories in /home/winnt/<user>
instead it creates them in /home/<user>

Any ideas?????
