Yes, using ldap passwd sync (although it has been rather argumentative
on recent versions; not certain why).

 I don't think so.  Buy you can use policies (via POLEDIT.EXE) to
redirect "My Documents" transparently to the user's network home
directory.  I think this is covered in the Samba HOWTO/ByExample and you
can go to Google and search 'site:lists.samba.org "folder redirection"'
to get lots of references.
