Sharing out unix home directory via samba.  Home directory is /home/%
username% . However, samba insists on sharing this directory as /home/%
domain%/%username% .  So a user can see their home directory as server
%username% from windows.  But, when they click on it, they get an error
and the samba log says that the share /home/%domain%/%username% doesn't
