[Samba] Need help figuring out "homes" share path

We set up a server to manage departmental servers and we're using 
winbind inorder to be able to manage access via AD domain 
accounts/groups.  And that's all working the way we want -- access to 
department shares is being managed by membership in domain groups in 
active directory.  That same physical server also has a second available 
2TB raid array where I want to add personal shares so that everyone on 
campus can have at least a couple of gigabytes of centrally managed 

Here's my problem.  When I execute the command "getent passwd" and just 
grep for myself, I get back:


I created an empty folder "/home/CATNET/rtanner" and made sure that it 
is owned by CATNET\rtanner.  I set the path in the homes share to 
"/home/CATNET but when I try to mount the share, I get a dialogue box to 
login to the share (which I shouldn't get) and then it still won't 
accept my credentials for the homes share.  When I just go to the server 
(typing \\server-name) and try to open up the homes share, I get a "You 
might not have permission to use this network resource" error.  I also 
tried renaming the folder to CATNET\rtanner.

Any ideas?
