I think he wants to boot via PXE and point to a local passwd file for login (So the
students can login as administrator I guess).
I think a smarter way would be to point to another passwd file so you won't have to
buy a HD for each PC.

I think he has a good point there, just don't know how you would go about doing it.
I will leave it for the experts.
