Yup, between 4 of my schools, I do just that. It works fine, the only 
time you notice any slowness, it's at login on Windows 2k/XP due to the 
roaming profiles, but that's not a problem with Samba, just with how 
Microsoft implimented roaming profiles for W2k/XP.  Trim the roaming 
profiles down, logins speed up.
