I don't know if there's any documentation on this per se, but what you 
can do is create a user ID, say, 'default', then login with that ID, 
make the changes you want to the desktop, panel, menus, etc. Then 
logout.  Login as yourself, su - to root, cd to /home/default, and copy 
the .config, .nautilus, .gconf, .gnome2, and .gconfd directories to 
/etc/skel/ (not all of these directories may exist, depending on what 
you've changed).  When new user IDs are created, they will get those 
directories in their respective $HOME directories and you'll get the 
desired effect.

I want to add a "window" to mimic the Novel Application window and populate it with some links for the initial pilot of LTSP in our schools. This is with EduBuntu specifically.
