(answer sent to the list, since that's where the question was asked).

Well, how you do it is up to you. How I do it on different rigs, is (and 
I hasten to say that I stole this from a poster this list):


root preexec = /etc/samba/scripts/mk_sambadir "/m/samba3/home/%u" "%u" "%g"

root preexec = /etc/samba/scripts/mk_sambadir "/m/samba3/profiles/%U" 
"%U" "%g"

if [ ! -d "$1" ]
   mkdir "$1"
   chmod 770 "$1" -R
   chown "$2" "$1" -R
   chgrp "$3" "$1" -R

You'll maybe have to swap some of the variables around to suit your needs.
