I currently have around 28 public use computers that are on windows XP with steady state to keep people from destroying the computers. I was toying around with switching over to linux, but have not been able to come up with a solution. I have read about Sabayon and Pessulus, but cannot seem to get them to work the way I want them. I want to have two accounts, an Admin, and a User. I want these restrictions to apply ONLY to the user account. Pessulus seems to force the restrictions on to ALL accounts which I do not want. I want to disable the following things:
Make System Changes
Any other items that would allow them to alter the system
I also want to limit the users session time to 30 minutes so that after using it for 30 minutes, they automatically get booted off the computer.
Currently, I have Ubuntu 8.04 installed on the desktop that will serve as the testbed/master image.
