Question 'Roaming Profiles' Under FC6 Via Samba?


I was wondering if there was any way to get "roaming profiles" under Fedora Core 6 that are accessed from a Samba server. Basically, the user's home folder and all of his/her files are stored and accessed on the Samba server, so that they can login from any terminal that is set up to connect to the server and still have his/her files.

How would I go about doing this?
I know I could mount the /home directory using fstab, but how would I sync all of the user's passwords?

you can find the info for roaming profiles in /etc/samba/smb.conf You will also find webmin (localhost:10000) a usefull tool for this. There is options for sync unix and samba passwords.
