[Samba] Howto give console access to a samba user ?

Hi people,


I have a Debian (Woody) 2.4.25+Samba 3.0.2a running, I've joined a Active
Directory domain (net ads join) and I can successfully browse the AD users
and groups with wbinfo -u and wbinfo -g. 

I need to give to the samba (Windows) users access do linux
console/terminal, I've read the samba documentation about pam_winbind (
<http://us1.samba.org/samba/docs/man/winbind.html>  ), but I found some
difficulties, in my system there is no pam_stack module, where I can find it
? In despite of that I did the rest of the procedure described in the doc
above and now when the samba users logon on the system they receive an error
regarding to the home directory and alerting the user that (HOME=/) will be
used instead (how can I give a home folder to windows users ?), after this
message linux returns the user to the first questions in the logon screen
(user name).

Reading the logon files (auth.log) I could see the pam_winbind successfully
authenticate the user, I also ran getent passwd and received a list with all
linux+windows users, I observed the windows users have as shell /bin/false,
and I think that is the root of the problem.


Any help ?


Thank you,


Estevam Henrique
