Thanks for the feedback. We have the lab in question set up using windows.
In this age group (k-5) students login with a  user-name based on the
teacher for that class. So all 28 kids log in as "smith" for example. Inside
of the "smith" folder on a network share called k:\Smith is another
directory with each students name on it. Students drop work in that
directory. This isn't the ideal set up, but for various historical reasons
that is the convention we use. AFAIK because you can't "save-as" you can't
name  the image to differentiate it from other kids work. Short of providing
logins for all the k-3 set who generally use this I don't see a way around

What do you think?

As a side note, my goal is to replace this lab with an LTSP set up, but I
need to have analogs for those things which are favorites. KidPix and Type
to learn are big ones. Has anyone ever tried to run these under cross-over
