    I have bought about 30 machines with the following configuration:

    Celeron 3.2Ghz
    512MB RAM
    80GB HD

    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.
