Here is a snip of the smb.conf
        logon path = \\%L\%U\.UserData
        workgroup = st_mary
        encrypt passwords = yes
        smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd
        logon home = \\isadore\homes
   comment = Home Directories
   browseable = no
   writeable = yes
   preserve case = yes
   short preserve case = yes
   create mask = 0770
   hide dot files = yes
   hide files = floppy
   path = /home
