All users will use each others machine at some point.  I'm currently thinking 
of setting it up for my university's computers.  There are about 500 
workstation and more than 5000 students, and they can log in to any 

Is there anyway the profiles will be copied to the Samba server and 
automatically deletes the local workstation profile?
