[Samba] Auto Mounting home directory using samba

I usually make a [homes] share something like this:

   comment = Home Directories
   browseable = no
   read only = no
   create mask = 0770
   directory mask = 0770

This will create a share for each user. The home directory is automatically
the same as the *NIX account home directory. Then, I usually use some thing
like "net use u: /home" in my login script.

Hope this helps.
