I'm not sure what you mean exactly with 'local folders' - do you mean the 
directory where you store your documents (pics, text files, spreadsheets..) 
in, or rather your complete $HOME (including hidden directorys for application 
settings, like ~/.kde ...) ?
in general, keeping documents on any supported server file system (smb, nfs 
..) should not be a problem at all.
things like ~/:kde are better kept on the local drive (due to e.g. symlinks 
not supported in smb etc., but moreover also the fact that you will loose all 
your settings if the server is not available).
