    Alwaysync is good - it's free up until you hit certain file limits (in terms of size and number of files).

    You could script it partially - have it check for a network drive at login and sync from a laptop hard drive folder.

    When they logoff, have it sync back toward the laptop folder.

    It's quick and dirty but may do exactly what you want

    Thanks for the suggestion for Dropbox - definitely a good one for me, since I use Ubuntu on my laptop and XP on my desktop/work comps. Integrates well with the OS in every case - no need to fire up the browser.

    Now, if they can add Windows Mobile support, we'll be singing..
