    Samba + OpenLDAP is what you want. OpenLDAP works like windex directory services, allowing you to have the same /home/user folder whereever you log in...as well as having the same permissions, etc. from any node on the network.

    windows clients are win 2000 and win XP ,
    will samba+openldap allow users to login graphically to kde or gnome??

    If you have an X server on the windex boxen, I think that can be accomplished. But it's mainly to have a central server that all users authenticate with to make managing the network easier.
