do not create a [homes] share.
Instead, as Klaus suggests,
path = /home/%U/somedir
valid users = %U
browsable = true
guest ok = false
admin users = @your_admin_group_name
If you're on a Windows domain, and you're using security = server,
on the PDC in the user manager specify the UNC path to the home
directory as in \\server\my-home
