Thanks for the input.  What would you recommend as a home file server
instead? Samba?  Also, I just got the RHCE book and am just testing things
out, so it has been a nice learning experience for me.

If I were to use LDAP, what would happen if I tried to use the laptop in the
absence of the server?  Is a local copy stored, ala how my work windows
network works?
