I have spent some time on the task of distributing filesystems(desktops) and basically I have drawn a blank. You have one mean feat ahead of you replicating /home dirs over a T1, unless you only have 20 or so users.

You might consider scripting an rysnc to the other site on logout - a
poor mans' distributed Desktop..  As long as the users do not have huge
files coming and going there should be no strife.

Or you might upgrade to fibre ;-)

For the limited number of users with T1 connections I was thinking more along the lines of remote login or vnc type access from alternate sites, not replicating home directories.
