I am running a home network currently with ClarkConnect 3.0. I have setup Samba to share each user’s home directory. Each users can they access all their files from their network share, on all the PCs in the house. (This also means only one location needs to be regularly backed up.

My question is, on my Window XP laptop I can set the share to be "available offline" it then synchronizes on a regular basis so that I do not have to be connected to the network to access my files. I am very seriously considering switching from my Win XP notebook to a 12" PB. It is somewhat important that I am in some way able to do this. Does OS X support this? Is there anything trivial I should know about accessing shares like this on OS X after switching from Windows?

Thanks for the help.
