How to mount active directory home directories in suse (kerberos, samba) do i need to use LDAP?

I have set up SuSE to authenticate against active directory using MIT kerberos & Samba3.

I need to mount the users home folders (as stated in AD) to a subdirectory of their unix home folders, so that they don't end up with loads of .config files when they return to the world of windoze.

Can the samba client lookup the location of the home folders? Do i haveto use LDAP to grab this info?

Has anyone managed this before?

Any pointers would be hugely appreciated.

Many thanks,

Thanks, but i mean the other way around, so people using suse can see their windows home folders....
