Yes. All that and more can be made with Samba. Regarding Netscape's
personalized settings, all you have to is configure it to pick up it's
profile (Netscape Communicator 4) from each user's home mapping drive 
(mine is the H:\Netscape directory). That way Netscape can be fooled to
use only one profile which is different for every user, since every Home
drive is connected upon logon.

You have much more work waiting for some tidbits, but it's all a matter of
pulling back your sleeves and digging in the mud. Check the archives of
this list for some more general info:
