[Samba] Automagic creation of user a/c & homedir when I create a NT domai n user (???)

Has anybody got a script that auto-creates a linux user (...& hence a Samba
home dir) when a user a/c is created on the M$ DC? eg, the way admins expect
it to work in a homogenous M$ domain.

I expect that the DC uses a form of RPC to create the home dir.  This would
have to be caught & fire off a 'useradd' script.  ...but I might be
completly wrong...
