The hard part of doing this is to get the right schema and populate the records properly. You can install OpenLDAP easily on a Linux box (or any OS X Mac for that matter) but getting the right information into it is a huge hurdle.

Of course you don't need an XServe to run OS X Server. You could for your network just get a copy of Panther Server - the 10 client version is still serious money at $499 in the US but it will save you a great deal of time and trouble. Install it on the fastest of your home Macs and you should have no problems.

Once you have OS X Server there are even more facilities you can provide than just single sign on and shared Home folders.

    Did anyone ever succeed in actually doing this? It looks like the last entry was just suggesting the purchase of OS X Server. I'm trying to find out if there's a way to do it, and how.
