Once you go to samba 3 there is a parameter that allows you to specify 
the home dir location.  Use the pdbedit command to change the homedir 

To use the same password data as the logon server, you can join your 
second workstation to the domain and use security=domain.  Make sure 
that your unix IDs are synced as well, either manually or by using a 
network directory like LDAP or NIS.
