I finally have my profiles problem squared away....

I've done away with the Administrator user in smbldap-tools by running 

smbldap-populate -a root

instead of just plain 


Thus root is now the samba admin.  BUT....when I run getent passwd my
system shows the home directory as /home/root instead of /root....how can
I change this...or better yet how can I have my cake and eat it too in the
sense that when I set up my Samba/LDAP server that the root user has the
/root directory as home by default?
