Linux roaming profiles?

In win we all know profiles. It doesn't matter on which pc you log in, your settings and personal drive are mounted in the network. What is the linux counter part? How to set it up and could it be setup right from installing on a client?
I'm trying to get this done for 5 clients and have a server running apache, samba etc....

You can do centralized authentication with Kerberos or LDAP and mount home directories via an NFS share.
