Are they going to be installing software or running as an administrator? If not sounds like the Leopard guest account would be a good way to do that.

Subject: [MSUNAG] Mac clients?
We will be running 2 where each of 25 students will use a Macbook with
pre-installed software but will need to access the internet to do their
assignments. We would like the Macs to return to a clean disk image after
It has been suggested that we either:
1) Have the Macs run as clients from a server that will store all the
changes and the data
2) Have the Macs boot to a server after class is over to install the
standard image again.
I think the campus computer labs do a combination of 1 and 2 above?
I'm not a Mac person so I'm not sure if other solutions exist - we'd like
to do without a server if possible.
