well, these at least:

     logon path = \\%L\profiles\%u
     logon drive = m:
     logon home = \\%L\homes\%u
     logon script = %G.bat
     add user script = /usr/sbin/useradd -d /dev/null -c 'Samba User 
Account' -s /dev/null '%u'
     add group script = /usr/sbin/groupadd '%g'
     add user to group script = /usr/sbin/useradd -d /dev/null -c 'Samba 
User Account' -s /dev/null -g '%g' '%u'
     add machine script = /usr/sbin/useradd -d /dev/null -g 
sambamachines -c 'Samba Machine Account' -s /dev/null -M '%u'
     delete group script = /usr/sbin/groupdel '%g'
     delete user from group script = /usr/sbin/userdel '%u' '%g'
     delete user script = /usr/sbin/userdel '%u'
     domain master = auto

Though there are others, I would suggest you follow the wiki page I 
pointed out to you.
