Samba + Roaming Profiles Location

Hey guys, I configured samba with roaming profiles. Everything is working fine, however i would like to change where samba saves the user data.

Currently samba is saving the data and profiles like so

data : /home/USER_NAME/
profile: /home/USER_NAME/Profiles

What i would like to do is save to the following location

/media/data/student/USER_NAME (for files)

Tried changing both logon path and logon home to the above paths and it could no longer locate my default profile (netlogin/Default user)

So if anyone could help me figure out how to change my user data locations i would be one happy camper.

Heres my current config.

   workgroup = me.local
   security = user
   domain logons = yes
   logon path = \\%N\%U\profile
   logon drive = H:
   logon home = \\%N\%U
   logon script = logon.cmd

   comment = Home Directories
   browseable = no
   read only = no
   create mask = 0700
   directory mask = 0700
   valid users = %S

   comment = Network Logon Service
   path = /media/data/netlogon
   guest ok = yes
   read only = yes
   share modes = no
