I am currently trying to create a Edubuntu LTSP for a small international school k-12. The computers are a mixture of older emacs and imacs that I would like to convert to thin-clients that log directly into a server with upgraded hardware. There are 30-40 computers.

Current progress: I have installed Edubuntu LTSP on virtual box and tested using a virtual thin client. It seems to be working out of the box, but I need to implement several changes to bring this into the school environment. I am familiar with windows terminal services, but am new to linux so there are many things that I am currently struggling with.

Changes:
1. Creating user accounts and groups for 200 students
a. Managing permissions for programs and files by group
b. Managing desktop preferences (appearance) by group

2. Installing and configuring remote screen viewing for teacher monitoring
a. Epoptes best option? (www.epoptes.org)

3. Is there an equivalent in Linux for terminal services manager?

4. General suggestions on using LTSP (best resources)

Any guidance is greatly appreciated. I have been looking around the web and found bits and pieces but nothing that is really easy to follow. I am really enjoying the feel of the OS and applications that edubuntu provides.
