Funnily enough, so am I.

You have a problem here, the problem being that you are confusing
windows users and linux users. When a windows user logs in (and you are
using roaming profiles) it will use whatever path you put in the
'profilePath' attribute in the users AD. A linux user uses different
attributes, ' unixHomeDirectory' & 'loginShell', you should not mix
these attributes, but you can connect to the users linux home directory
from a windows machine.
