The drive needs to be formatted in NTFS first otherwise it will not work. You then need a common share point from which all domain users can access the share. The permissions will be set for creator owner, system and administrator. Then for each user in the domain you need to set up a home directory which can be done automatically under user manager for domains, user properties, profile, home directory, at local path type in the following \\servername\share point\%username%

To hide a folder in NT you put a $ sign at the end of the share name.
Create the user's home diretory (ex: e:\users\username)and give the user Change permission. Share it as username$. No need to change permissions on the share.
In User Manager, go to Profile and point the 'Home Directory' to \\servername\username$.
The user can then access his home directory by opening the drive letter you have assigned for home directories or by going to Start, Run and entering \\servername\username$. Entering \\servername\users (if users is shared) will not show the hidden user Home Directories.
