Hi all, I have Winbind authentication up and running properly (thanks to new, easy to use features of Redhat Ent 4).

My question is this.  I know that I can, by massaging /etc/pam.d files manually, have Winbind/Samba automatically create a home directory for each user that logs in, but I am wondering if Samba/Winbind can instead map to their home directory as defined in their Windows profile (\\mywindowsbox\userhome) ?
