Sync Mac Profile with Samba Server

Dunno if this is the right forum but I've got a hybrid network of Windoz and Mac clients that I want to auth to a CentOS Samba server (currently running a tdbsam backend but will eventually be migrated to an OpenLDAP backend)...what is the best solution for "sync'ing" the Mac clients (mostly laptops) to the server, all the solutions that I've seen suggest that I should simply map the users home drive to the PDC but that doesn't mac much since to me seeing as they need to access their computers data while they're off site...is there a way to "sync" user profiles in Linux>?

THanks

If you're just wanting to synchronize their local home directory with a home dir on the server, the easiest way might be to use Synk (http://www.decimus.net/). The "right" way is to use Portable Home Directories, but that's a feature of Mac OS X Server (you can do it other ways, but it's non-trivial).

Or, you can just use the Samba server to store Time Machine backups:
