Shared home directories (NFS) across different distributions
I've been searching for a solution to this for a bit and haven't been able to find a good fix...

Right now I have a server which serves up home directories and users for the other machines. So when you login to one of the other machines your home directory is stored on the server. The problem here is, some of the client machines are running Red Hat and others are running Ubuntu and this causes configuration errors in some applications (e.g. Gnome). Is there a way to have different gnome configurations depending on the distribution being booted or some other way to fix this?

As an idea, rather that using whole home directories, create symbolic links to directories you need.
That way you will able to keep configs of different distros locally and required directories on the server.
