[Samba] AD home drive

Hi Rowland,

Initially I deposited the line towards the bottom but then it didn't work. The line wasn't getting enough attention so it decided to creep up a bit :)
As suggested in the initial email, the box was a NT4 PDC which had the all the shares. The home drive pointed to /home/%U/samba.  

Looking at the logs, to me it looks like the default smb.conf template (as suggested by Louis) doesn't match the homes definition

I said 'add' it, not plonk it into the middle of the file ;-)

Also your path is a bit suspect, I would expect '/home/samba/%U' and '/home/samba' would have to exist.
