Jim, we dont have anywhere near that many students but we do run ltsp 
for about 100 students. We have to use a Windows 2003 DC so I unstalled 
M$ Services for Unix (free!!!!) and it authenticates linux users and 
even maps out their exsiting windows folders via nfs. It really is not a 
bad solution.
