Yes, today, no explicit [profiles] share in smb.conf is given by debian-edu, 
nor the correct netlogon and home directives in smb.conf

But you do not use Win9x boxes. They have different profile stores. So you 
are in a way conform to the actual delivered smb.conf which makes less 

All above should be preconfigured during installation and needs a tool to be 
easily activated by a teacher / admin. 

I see a relation to BUG 941 ( http://bugs.skolelinux.no/show_bug.cgi?id=941) 
which is touched by this too.
So preconfiguration of the usage of samba at server-side-storage is needed.
Therefore a concept has to be discussed and written down to rules 
(partitioning, quota, acl, smb.conf, ldap, ...) which places are served for 
usage with samba AND nfs so that a user, whereever he logs in, on a 
WinBox(9x or NT+) or a linux box, gets his homefolders AND the other 
provided storages.

This touches also the apropriate backup scenario for that storages.

That would be nice, I hope you do.
