Default Newb: (Ubuntu) How do I automatically create a custom environment for all new users?


As the admin of a box with lots of other users, how would I go about setting things up so that each new user created on the box is given an environment other than the Ubuntu default.

Say I was starting with a fresh install of Jaunty desktop and I wanted each new user I create have a custom folder/permissions setup.

The standard setup in terms of folders seems to be:

/Templates (What the heck is this for...?)

What if I wanted each user to automatically be presented with:
             /Personal Documents
             /School Documents
            /Private Pictures
            /Shared Pictures
All with non-standard permissions.

Is this even possible?
