[Samba] Samba doesn't create user profiles on the fly

Hi there!

I've got Samba server running on CentOS box. Everything works fine when I use 
"path" parameter, but I think Samba should create /home dirs for clients 
It should look like this:

comment = Home Directory of '%u'
valid users = @"Domain Group"
browseable = no
writable = yes
create mask = 0600
directory mask = 0700

"smbclient -L //sambaserver" shows that homedir exists, but still it's not 
possible to mount it.

Here's the output for user "test"

Sharename Type Comment
--------- ---- -------
homes Disk Home Directory of 'test'
test Disk Home Directory of 'test'

When I explicitly declare "path" param, it works ok. But I need PERSONAL home 
dir for every user separately, not one dir for everyone.  

Maybe I'm doing something wrong. Any suggestions?
 Best regards,
