Default Multiple desktops sharing users, files etc


I have bought about 30 machines with the following configuration:

Celeron 3.2Ghz

I will install Debian on them. But i would like to share the users, files etc between them.

Example: i'm on machine "one", i login with user fernando, create a file and exit. When i go to machine "two" and login with fernando i will be able to access file.

I know that i can do this with LTSP but since this machines have a good configuration ( for office/internet purposes ) i would like to use their resources instead of using a single server.

you could use one machine as a master and setup an NFS export from that machine of /home. Mount that on each of the machines as /home and mirror the passwd, shadow and group files.

The master wouldn't have to be a standalone server.
