i did this at a client site a month or so ago. they have a redhat 9 box
with the stock version of samba acting as a domain controller, i set it
up so that users could authenticate against the server and have roaming
profiles. local accounts on the workstations are not needed, machine
accounts are automatically added, and each user has a seperate profile
folder on the server. a couple of registry hacks were required on the
xp clients to get them working properly though, and it took some trial
and error to get it working nicely. but it is possible!
