I have recently added a shared folder to my Mac OS X network through workgroup manager. But somehow when some clients login to the updated network they get a warning msg that states "home directory has been moved or deleted" and sees nothing on their desktop.
Does anyone know why that happens? or can anyone tell me where i can check the location of the home diretory and possibly changing the location of the home directory?
Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Wow, your intuitive skills are quite sharp at this hour, no?
My quick thoughts on this - might you have unknowningly set up roaming profiles (or whatever they're called in the Mac world) at the same time as you made the shared folder? If so, and assuming this is not how you were previously operating, could the client computers be attempting to connect to the server for their home directory instead of looking at their own local filesystem?
Please note that this is a weak hypothesis, and that I'm really only drawing on my knowledge of networking to come to these conclusions - I've spent all of an hour, total, working on OS X server (though I might have to try and help my colleague out tomorrow).
