I'm assuming you're using Active Directory, since Open Directory might have a way to configure that for OSX

1    Open System Preferences and click Accounts.

2    If the lock icon is locked, unlock it by clicking it and entering the name and password of an administrator.

3    Click Login Options, then click Join or Edit.

4    Click Open Directory Utility.

5    If the lock icon is locked, unlock it by clicking it and entering the name and password of an administrator.

6    Click Services.

7    In the list of services, select Active Directory and click the Edit (/) button.

8    If the advanced options are hidden, click Show Advanced Options.

9    Click User Experience, then click “Create mobile account at login,” and optionally click “Require confirmation before creating a mobile account.”

   *     If both options are selected, each user decides whether to create a mobile account during login. When a user logs in to Mac OS X using an Active Directory user account, or when logging in as a network user, the user sees a dialog with controls for creating a mobile account immediately.

   *     If the first option is selected and the second option is unselected, mobile accounts are created when users log in.

   *     If the first option is not selected, the second option is disabled.

10    Click OK.

Open in new window


Since the steps are quite involved, I just took it from:   http://support.apple.com/kb/PH9268
