Identical Initial Linux Desktop Required from a Single Samba Domain Location

Is it possible to use /etc/skel from a Samba Primary Domain Controller when logging in to the domain, as a user, from a client PC for the first time?

Currently any new user obtains the settings from the /etc/skel on the local client PC.

01 Provide a single central location for the initial desktop delivered to each new user, at first login, conducted at any client PC
02 Allow each user to customize the the desktop following delivery of the 'default' configuration.

PDC OS = Xubuntu 8.04 Server Edition
Client OS = Xubuntu 8.04 Desktop Edition


desktop, etc, pdc, samba, ubuntu
