[Samba] sharing users home dirs for Win2003 and linux

I'm in the process of doing something very similar. From what I
understand, the client-side permissions don't matter... as long as the
clients authenticate through winbind, it'll let the user access their
files (as long as the permissions are correct on the server... IE, if
user "test123" owns /home/test123, then the clients should let test123
access it too).

Sorry if I didn't explain that well... it's getting late, and I've been
working on this for about 14 hours straight now...
