How to set up network based home folders and authentication to achieve ability to log on from any machine in my home?

For my home network, comprised of one tower/workstation/file-n-print server and several laptops (for each member of the family), all running Ubuntu 9.10 or 9.04, I want to be able to do what the über-cool UNIX/FreeBSD/Linux developers have been doing for almost two decades, namely, from any machine on the network, any user (i.e., family member) is able to log on and have their settings, bookmarks, documents - i.e., her home folder.
