This is incredibly nooby of me, but I need to ask this since I have no idea what I'm doing at all. I'm looking to create a server, and I'm not sure what components I need to install using the Ubuntu 13.04 server installer.
How the server should work (modelling it after the current school server) is a student boots the computer, puts in their login info, and the computer connects to the server, syncs their network folder (where all their files and such are stored), and then the computer loads the desktop.
It would also be great to be able to manage updates, settings and everything on the computers from the server, although I don't know if that's possible (I suppose kinda like Landscape does, just for free)
If that's not enough info, please ask me questions and I'll do my best to provide more.
