[Samba] access users homes share

hey list,

we are currently migrating our users from novell to samba. now we have one problem: in novell we could give e.g. user1 access to users2 home share so he could modify, delete or add files on this share. in samba we defined a global homes share that is mapped on logon. so how can we give user1 the needed rights? 
here is the definition of the homes share in smb.conf:

        comment = user share
        browseable = no
        writeable = yes
        write list = %U
        create mask = 0600
        directory mask = 0700
        force user = %U
        force group = Administrators
        oplocks = true

do we need to add a special share and group?

thanks for help and best regards
