[K12OSN] Web based file sharing

Actually...I am really interested in this topic as well. I like Byteboard
as a solution if we can't figure it out.
I am a teacher and I spent a month last summer at Indiana University for a
grad class on web design. Their system is really cool: you look into your
account (it is Windows, but listen anyway :) ) and you are given a 100mb
storage drive, plus access to a large scratch drive for temporary storage
should you need it. They have a web server that allows you to access that
drive from the Internet and upload and download files as you please.
I'm sure it was custom, but perhaps that is what we are looking for? I am
not sure about y'all but among the largest problems with use of computers is
the issue of transporting files from school to home. It's no problem for
me, because I have set up my own FTP server at home. :)

I am intrigued by this bytehoard solution but am dissapointed to see
that by default it seems to want to use its own user base. Is there a
similar solution that is just an add on to the local machine. What I
mean is something that will use the local user base and file
permissions? Say I already have a smb and afp server and just want to
give the 500 local users on that server an easy cross platform access
from off site using this type of php client.
