Hi Everyone,
I have a few windows XP professional machine and a inux server running
machine with samba,
I want to make a centralized XP  user's using samba server for user
authentication, as we are doing in Active Directory service.
In one word I want implement roaming profile.
 (mean suppose there is user sam, now sam can login from any windows XP
machine since samba will manage user informatation and profile along with
authentication )

How do I do this?
