rmtshare and administrative shares

I want to use rmtshare on a windows 2003 server , sp2,  to set up an administrative share on another server (windows 2003 server, sp2) and have the syntax wrong and cant figure it out.  Can someone help me?
I am on server named server1 and want to set up an administrative share to server2 for
\\server2\d$\users\name where the administrative share would be \\server2\name$
I am using the command:
Rmtshare \\server2\name$=\\server2\d$\users\name /grant user:c /grant "domain admins":F

The path to the share has to *local*, not a UNC:
Rmtshare \\server2\name$=D:\users\name /grant user:c /grant "domain admins":F

But it seems like you want to create individual home shares. Any specific reason for that?
If you only have clients running W2k or later, you can link directly to a subfolder of a share; only NT4 clients have to map directly to a share:
