You can do so using the Create method of the WMI Win32_Share class

this is from Microsoft at this location:

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/scriptcenter/guide/sas_fil_grpq.mspx?mfr=true
Const FILE_SHARE = 0
Const MAXIMUM_CONNECTIONS = 25
strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
 & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set objNewShare = objWMIService.Get("Win32_Share")
errReturn = objNewShare.Create _
 ("C:\Finance", "FinanceShare", FILE_SHARE, _
 MAXIMUM_CONNECTIONS, "Public share for the Finance group.")
Wscript.Echo errReturn

Do you still have NT4 clients?
If not, I would recommend against creating a dedicated user share for each user. It's unnecessary and only creates technical overhead on the server and administrative overhead for you.
Just map the home folder directly; since W2k, drives can be mapped to a subfolder of a share:
\\server\share\%username%
