[Samba] limitation in the homes share

Ah, this is something I needed to set up on my system.  I created another
share "Private" which is  /home and allowed access to myself and one other
staff member so we can inspect user's directories and also backup the entire
/home directory and all subdirectories.

Here's the section from my smb.conf

	comment = Access for Backup of *Central Server*
	path = /home
	admin users = mike, ray
	browseable = No

Hope that helps.
