	My first idea would be: NFS. If it is not possible, you
should try pam_mount, you would be able to mount the home once
the logon happens and that should solve the problem.

	The real problem will come up if you need to have a HOT
copy of local $HOME and $SERVERHOME, that could be tricky to
implement and you would probably need to use a distributed file
system, but I'm not really sure what would be the best solution
in that case.
