Re: [school-discuss] Web Sites

First thing I think of would be to set up the central server with NFS and then set it up so that the workstations create a mount to the NFS server drive.  That would be kind of like 'mapping' a drive to the remote server - so when users are in the GUI, they can just drag and drop into the folder.  I think if you do a little searching for Ubuntu and NFS you can find some good articles that should lead you in the right direction.  (Anyone have other ideas?)
Not sure on the printing side..

I am trying to move Edubuntu or Ubuntu into our international school as
the standard operating system.  Right now, I have a major problem:
My users are teachers mostly who are NOT going to use the command-line
at all.  So my question is, how do I provide my users with a simple
icon-moving technique for taking documents (say in OpenOffice) created
locally and storing them in a central server?

Related to this question is:  How do I tell my users how to send their
documents to a remote computer printer or a LAN printer, graphically?

Please let me know if this is a FAQ but a search I just made of my
collection of recent Edubuntu digests yielded nothing useful.
