[Samba] net use H: /home does not work

The latest Orielly book Using SAMBA 2nd edition says that after you have 
created a homes share that adding this line to your logon.bat file the 
user's home directory will be mapped and it will be called their user 
name. Well the logon.bat script gets an error on this line saying that 
it is not the proper use of the net use command. So instead I changed 
the command to net use H: \\pts3\homes and that works except the name 
that displays on the mapped drive is homes - not the user's logon name. 
How do I make this work properly?
Here is the definition of my homes share:

	comment = Home Directories exported for users
	path = %H
	valid users = %S
	read only = No
	create mask = 0600
	directory mask = 0700
	browseable = No
