Windows 7: User Profiles without Server

User Profiles without Server

I have several PC's running Windows 7 and was wondering whether it was possible to create a single user account for a user over all the pc's rather then have a seperate user account on each of the pcs. For example, when using a server you can be assigned a login and then no matter what pc you use, when you login your files, permissions etc are the same...

Can this only be done with a server?

You can look at creating a homegroup with Windows 7, but you'll still need an account on each PC unless you have a server.
