How to login X-Window(Gnome) via Domain account?

I installed CentOS5.3 joined to windows DC (Win2K3)

may I know how can I login to the CentOS in GUI with domain\userID ?

whenever I login it shows there's no HOME folder for domain\userID, so I created manually but don't know how can I chmod the owner to the userId..

If I ignore this but just login, it will tell me the error, "user's $HOME/.dmrc file is being ignored. This prevents the default session and language from being saved. File should be owned by user and have 644 permissions. User's $HOME directory must be owned by user and not writable by other users." I know it was caused by the owner, but I am unable to chmod....

If I click oky buttn then tell me "your session ony lasted less then 10 seconds. if you have not logged out yourself. this could mean that there is some installation problem or that you may be out of diskspace. "

If I view details (~/.xsession-errors file)
/etc/gdm/Presession/default: registering your sessin with utmp
/etc/gdm/Presession/default: running: /usr/bin/sessreg -a -u /var/run/utmp -x " /var/gdm/:0.Xservers" -h "" -l ":0"
localuser:domain\userID being added to access control list
No profile for user 'domain\UserID' found
Loading simple config module
Creating backend...

then if I click Ok button again, then session will be logout and give me back to the login screen...

any idea or experience on setting this up? or allow to login via window domain account to GUI interface?

answer myquestion here again
for the auto create folder issues:

add one more line into /etc/pam.d/sysconf-auth would fix this issue.
session required silent skel=/etc/skel umask=0077
