Without details of your configuration (smb.conf, pam configuration etc),
it's difficult to know where the problem would come from, but:

Mandrake 9.0 has support for authenticating against a windows domain,
using Winbind, which you can setup during installation.


If you follow the steps there, on first boot you should be able to login
with a domain account, and your user's home directory will be created on
the first login attempt.
