You need to use pam_mkhomedir, you can do this on debian by adding this
to /etc/pam.d/common-account:

session    required   pam_mkhomedir.so skel=/etc/skel/ umask=0022

This will create the users homedir the first time the user logs in.

I believe it is called something else on red hat, pam_oddjob ??

Good, you don't really want you users to log into the DC, but if you
do, you just set it up in the same way as a Unix domain member.
