I actually did recently find a solution to my issue.
Turnkey Linux Domain Controller does these things:
"I am wondering if there is a linux distro that I can use as a fileserver that can:
a) authenticate users
b) automatically mount their home folder on the server.
Can I get this to work with both linux and windows desktops? "
I installed it, joined a few windows XP Pro machines to the domain , logged in as a domain user and found a home drive and public share automatically mapped to the server. It works great.
It did not work for me with a linux desktop, since it uses a netlogon folder with a windows style batch file to map the drives.
