[Samba] map user homes to a windows share

Hello everyone,

I've been tasked with setting up several computer labs in a school with 
Ubuntu workstations. I have successfully joined those workstations to 
the windows domain and set it up so they authenticate to the windows 
domain as well. My problem is that I need to figure out how to have each 
user's home folder on the Ubuntu boxes map to the users home folder on 
the windows 2003 server. The share location of their home folders on the 
windows 2003 server is something like 
\\servername\docs$\students\%username%. I'm not even sure if I can map 
to a hidden share "$" in samba and also specify the %username% variable.

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

Kind regards,
