Does there exist any (relatively) easy method to set user settings 
like home directory & logon script from a *nix system w/ Samba?

I find that I can create a new user and set group membership, as well 
as set/change the user's password on an AD from a *nix system with 
Samba using the NET [ADS|RPC] utility.   But I don't see a way to 
either create the user with home directory / logon script preset, or 
to change these settings after user creation. Am I missing something?
