no, you're right about that, but i was thinking about this yesterday too.  how 
does one use their linux laptop like some of the coporate folks use their 
windows laptops?  when they're at the office, they use the profile on the 
server; when they're away, they use the "roaming" copy of the profile.

does such a thing exist for us?  i got to thinking about some crazy rsync 
script that would run just before disconnecting and right after reconnecting 
to the "home" network, but that's a kludge.

anyone doing something like the linux road warrior?
