After yesterday and samba not linking the %u switch we now have a samba
server up and running, joined to our domain and wbinfo -u responds with all
the domain users :)  The add user script i`ve put in so far partly works it
creates the user, but no home directory, even though browsing to the linux
box still gves you //samba_server/User_name.
But no home directory is created. deleting the the user in yast it asks me
if i want to delte the users home directory as well, but obvioulsy one
doesn`t exsist.  Can any one offer me any help as to home to get a users
home directory created on the fly.

Thanks for any assistance, 3 days left to get it working, below is my
