I think you can automatically with Samba.
try something like:
comment = Home Directories
;browseable = no
writable = yes
valid users = %S
users = %S
create mode = 0664
directory mode = 0775
then in your login script do a:
net use h: \\sambaserver\@userid"
otherwise you will have to continually maintain the shares when you
add/remove a user. The above is all automatic.
If you still wanted an all homes share you could do:
comment = All Homes
path = /home
;browesable = yes
writeable = no
