Question NIS/NFS and sharing home directories


I administer a ton of servers and we're just in the process of setting up NIS to manage the password databases. I was wondering if I could garner some experience and knowledge for the NFS side of things.....I want to export users' home directories from the main file server to all the others, to complete the benefits of NIS, but was wondering what is the best way to do this and whats the easiest procedure? (ok, well I can work out the procideure, but I'd like to hear of your experiences)

many thanks
