Autologin based on mac address. You can even have those accounts
"reset" to a clean state on login. Look at some of my previous postings
on kiosk for the scripts and stuff.
Gerald, I too am interested in a more user (student) friendly login and easy
user admin solution for our school. However, I didn't see any kiosk info
listed when I did a search for: Gerald Drouillard kiosk, could it possibly
be listed on some other website?
