try putting a valid path that the users have write access to their
home...

[homes]
comment = Home Directories
path = /home/samba/homes
browseable = no
writable = yes
valid users = %S
create mask = 600
directory mask = 700

# ls -ld /home/samba/homes
drwxrwx--- 2 root dom_users 4096 Jun 23 2003 /home/samba/homes

maybe even get crazy enough to create directories in /home/samba/homes
for each user...
