Question Maping the home folder to a different location


On my windows boxes i have mapped the my documents folder to my NAS server. Is there anyway to do this with Linux and the Home folder?

well yes, but you wouldn't if you want /home to be on a nas, then just put it there and mount it over the network. Once it's mounted again then there's no part of anything higher up that cares it's running from a nas, so nothing to change.
