i have a second question. sorry if i didn't write before.
My server has samba, smbldap-tools and ldap installed.
On the server i have a public directory /user_data with some documents 
available to everyone of domain and the directory i told you 
"/usersHomes" where i'll make every directory for every user. (ex: 
/usersHomes/username). /user_data doesn't need authentication but a user 
can enter in his home directory only.

I don't understand how these directory will be mount from the clients 
after the user login.
What are the possibility?
- insert in /etc/fstab two line to mount the /user_data and /usersHomes?
- or autofs?

Thanks again
