Well, I got all my directories moved around. I actually ended up  
remounting the drive with the user folders back at /home, and mounted  
my actual share folders back at /share. Both were always in seperate  
drives. All my permissions were actually managed from bash scripts, so  
it was super easy to reset and move my main samba shares.

I then swapped the user home folders back using the usermod (-d) tool.

I changed back my smb.conf back to my original settings. I thought  
that since my home folders were back where they always were, and that  
my smb.conf was back to original - it would all work.

So as it stands, all my defined shares work great, but my user home  
folders have the network path not found error when trying to access or  
map the drive.

So ideas in this issue?
