Lets say a user uses Mozilla on Linux and Netscape on Windoze under a 
samba-LDAP PDC where the users can log into either Windows or Linux 
using the same user record as described in the MandrakeSecure article:


The address book and bookmarks files could be sychronized using a 
symbolic link, could they not?  I was originally going to ask if samba 
would follow the link but it does not matter since Linux surely will. 
In other words you could make the Linux address book a link to the 
Windoze one.  So what happens when the user logs into Linux and adds a 
bookmark or a addressbook entry when the file turns out to be a link?
