> No, it won't be a 100% solution: the profiles will be independent (but it
will be a progress, comparing with the present situation: now, there is a
workgroup there, and no central server...). For laptop users it won't be a
problem: Windows syncs the locally stored profile to the server. For others,
it will be a little unconfortable: they will have two different profiles.
The SaMBa examples deal with relative small profiles, but here are bigger
profiles: 30-100MB, and even bigger for teachers. I excluded only the
Documents folder from the profile dir.
