Program to Control 100 PCs (with Linux OS)

Hi Expert,
Can you guide me to get a program where I can run on a host server to control 100PC, these PCs are loaded with Linux OS.
The PCs are for surfing and office applications purpose.
The control program must be able to control base on users network login, enable user to access a specific PC, bar user from accessing the PC, log the users out of the PC, limit the user to use the PC for a limited time and flash time out, enable/disable printing to a network printer....

Thank you very much.

what you need is probably NIS  "network information server"
it will let you use one host as an authentication server and you can restrict and assign users to a specific machine, as far as I remember, but then again I'm getting OLDER by the second.
this is a step by step guide to install NIS.
