setting up a linux network


I am starting new job next week with a start up company 6 pc in a office 10 laptops sometimes in and sometimes on the road , going to have a webserver and a ftp server
I talked company into running all linux we are going to run suse 9.1 and mandrake 10 official as desktop I want to use smootwall as firewall router heres my prob they want a network where each user has an account on the network with a mapped home drive so they can log on to any pc or laptop and gain access thru vpn from home , what do you recomend as a network server and will the above items work for me I have already assured them that I will get it to work I have adobe photoshop working great on winex they wannt the networkability of nt4.0/win2k but the security of linux so any ideas would be appreciated

sounds like the work of a NFS fileserver to me
