[Samba] Mounting home directories on NAS

I'm using Samba 2.2.12 (Sun Solaris 9 version) and it's all working
fine as a PDC for a small domain.

I would like to use the /home construct so that the home directories
are now mounted from a NAS rather than the local box.

In smb.conf I have

; User Profiles
logon path = \\%N\profiles\%U

; Where is a user's home directory and should it be mounted
logon drive = Z:
logon home = \\%N\%U

; Generic logon script for a user
logon script = "scripts\logon.bat %U"

Which all seems to work.

However if I try
logon home = \\eddie\nashomes\%U

It doesn't seem to.

Any ideas?
