First you need to network the two PC's.
You can do this via the parallel portsand plip or buy two cheap
ne1000 ethernet card clones.
The "r" commands allow you to remote execute commands, copy files, login.
You can mount the remote's hard drive usinf the nfs daemon and a nfs mount command (i.e. mount -t nfs hostname:exportname localmountpoint) make sure you have the nfs filesystem compiled into your kernel.
Using the same /home directory could be tricky, but, if you have a good .profile file that mounts the remote filesystem when you login  it should work. I'm presuming one /home on one machine that looks the same no matter which machine you actually log into.
