[Samba] smbmount, winbind and autofs

trying to automount the homedir on login on a
Linux client to a Win PDC (or Lin PDC for that matter)
This semms like a bright a idea, because it enables me to replace any
Win workstation with a Lin Workstation, but:
1. The password. Unable to give the password to autofs.
.....but even so, if I cleartext the password into the autofsmap:
2. The share gets mounted by root, which means
USER cannot acces his own homedir :-(
So...I cannot use autofs ? Alternatives ? Workarounds ? Anybody ?
I think it would be a useful thing, if it worked.
