I normally try in my [homes]
comment = Home Directory for %u on %D\%S
valid users = %D\%S, %S
It does not look pretty while testing, but at least you can see what
is been past ... The logic ( at least in my fuzy brain ) is that the
share name ( which is %S ), is the same as the user login into the share
... so when you view your server and see all your shares ( I put my view
into detailed ) you should see the comment for the share, which should
say "Home Directory for leet on leet".
If "share name" of [homes], which is normally the user logging
should be equale to one of the "valid users" values ...

>(I don't have a clue)
Don't worry, winbind is only really needed if you are going to Trust
an M$ ADS domain ... if you are not using it then it's was not what I
throught it was that which I ran into ...
P.S. I hope this makes sense ...
