Default Sharing programs on home network?

Ok, so at my school we all have to log on with username and password, and then we have all our own files/settings. Is there a way to do this with our two home computers? They are networked but it would be nice to share programs if we can, and have settings automaticially updated onto each computer. Can we do this if we do not have a server?

Computer 1 (Mums)
AMD Athlon XP - 1.31Ghz
512mb RAM
80GB HDD + 100GB external
Windows XP

Computer 2 (Mine)
(See Sig)

They are networked with broadband router...

First, you would have to setup your home network as a domain, and also have a dedicated server, with roaming profiles enabled. Not 100% sure how to set it up, but I do know this is how it is.
