roaming user accounts?

Ladies & Gents

I am looking into how to set up a roaming user account. I have searched a little on google but almost everything I saw had to do with samba and windows domain controlers.


I have a user that is mobile and I would like for that netbook to sync with the accounts on a server/desktop and update all links, contacts, bookmarks and data in both directions.

Ideally this account would be accessible from any machine on my network without having to have an account set up on every machine that the roaming user may use.

All the machines run some flavor of Debian Linux. Usually Testing.

Any how-to's or tutorials? Or any other info needed to help get me pointed in the correct direction.
