View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ubuntu At School HELP!

April 30th, 2010, 10:22 PM
My school are cutting costs.I suggested they go open source.They said if I could find out how then they would consider it.

Basically they want a mixture of windows and ubuntu clients.What I would like to no is how a ubuntu machine can connect to a server (SAMBA I think) so that it can access our home folder like the windows machines do.

A guide would be nice.

Also .. fat clients or thin clients?

If you want a more detail explanation on anything then just ask:P

This (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Alternate_Pam_Krb5LDAP_Authentication) is probably not what you had in mind (but just in case). Does the current server use Active Directory?
Here (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ThinClientHowto) is some (outdated) information on thin client setup, and some (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EdubuntuDocumentation/EdubuntuCookbook/ThinClient) that may be a little newer. As a side note, I notice the latter link references Edubuntu...
