Now here's the thing, I have an server at home :) (old cyrix) and my GF's Lap with Windows uses it as an login machine. If I want Linux to do the same wich apps do I need to emerge?
The server is running samba and is the master domain(only one) in the local network. I would like Gentoo to use the users registered on the server for login and when logging in Gentoo should mount your /home folder on the server to your /home folder on the local machine.
It was easy getting this to work in an windows machine but im not really sure where to start when using Linux.
Tnx to all of you who take the time and efort to ansver this post,

You probably just need samba on the gentoo machine and some sort of script to mount your home directory via samba would probably do the trick. If you stick something like this in your fstab, then that would more or less do what you want:

//fc4.tamu.edu/c$ /mnt/fc4 smbfs noauto,user,credentials=/home/bill/.smbcredentials,netbiosname=fc4,ip=165.91.195.180,workgroup=fc4

with the credentials file looking like:

username=yourusername
password=yourpassword

Hope that helps.
