That are hopefully located on the "BIG, SECURE", server and that one
does not allow UNTRUSTED clients to write on the share! That way one
does not have to run arround and install every little local twist on
every mashine.

I.m.h.o. you without truing to see the problems aloot of the othar
admins run into, tells that your (the old way) is better. At the moment
(sadly) Debian is one of the least well suited distributions for large
scale use. There are simply to much work on to many location to fit
anything but small installations. Automated scriptable atp-get upgarde,
is one step, distriburder packedges are one other) Both are a help in
the large scale work.
