    I'm wondering if the option to relocate account folders such a
    Documents, Pictures etc. in Vista is possible with the setup I have i
    mind

    I have multiple PCs on my network and want to relocate th
    corresponding account folders from each PC - i.e. MyAccount from PC1
    MyAccount from PC2 - to the same locations on a NAS, thus whateve
    changes are made on one will be reflected on another - giving a kind o
    Active Directory 'impression'

    Example: Go to Documents and select Properties > Location > Move, an
    relocate directory to NAS. Do the same for correspondin
    account/directory on another PC and relocate to same location on NAS

    I want to know whether relocating directories from two separat
    directories/accounts/PCs to the same location on the NAS will caus
    problems, or whether files will simply be accessable from eithe
    account/PC

    If it's possible, will there be any permission issues (Windows and/o
    NAS) and could such relocation still be done (even if some tweaking i
    necessary) for directories such as Favorites, Contacts, Links etc
