NFS Homeshares located on the server instead of local...

Hi All,

I've setup my new server with OpenSuSE 10.3 GM and both my workstations are also dual booting WinXP and SuSE 10.3 with SuSE being the primary OS...

I've been doing alot of config and loving every minute of it as you can imagine, of course that makes me duplicate my work 3 times in some cases.. IE pidgin, bookmarks, homepages etc etc...

So i've began to look into roaming profiles for linux.

I've got pointed to using NFS and i have everything working as of now... question i have though is :

I'm currently relocating both the /home and /usr/local to the server... is it neccessary to relocate to the server share of /usr/local also? I want to keep things as fast as possible on the login but I want the wife and kids to see the same desktop / programs on whichever computer they decide to use.

Thanks in advance!
