Linux Samba Server Folder Redirection

I've got a nice Samba Server running OpenSuse 10.3, everything is working great. I would like to find out how to configure folder redirection for each user so that instead of saving files to folders such as My Documents, without the users knowledge, i would like all files actually being saved to a directory of my choosing on the Linux server.
Can someone help me with this issue?
It will be greatly appreciated.
