Unfortunately, the script is owned by my employer so I can't share it. But all 
I did was set up OpenLDAP, use the Official Samba HOWTO to configure the 
Linux server. Then on each Linux work station I just copy the pam_mount 
script there are modify /etc/nsswitch.conf and /etc/pam.d/xdm to support 
LDAP. I put the pam_mount script in cron to run nightly to syncronize with 
the Linux server. Then, the Linux desktops automatically mount the users data 
from /var/lib/samba/profiles/<username>/My Documents 
to /home/<user>/network_drive and unmount it when they log off.

On Windows, you just join an NT4 style domain and then that's it. The Samba 
server instructs it to do roaming profiles. The profiles are stored 
in /var/lib/samba/profiles/<username>
