Workstation Maintainance?

Hi there,

this is about possible improvements for maintaining skolelinux work 
stations. Just another set of ideas - please comment if it makes sense 
and is feasible:

At the moment I hesitate installing an entire lab with slx workstations 
- not (only) because of woody, but rather because of its maintainance.

As write access should mainly go to NFS mounted home directory, isn't it 
possible to mount local drives (except swap) r/o ? This could save 
forced fsck after crude power offs - and prolongue the system' live 
until re-install, too (easily done from CD if there is no dual boot 

To have a better syncing: how about mounting /etc/apt if not /etc from 
tjener:/skole/workstation/etc or the like? Alternatively some "pull" 
script could load recent stuff from some space on tjener (rsync or 

What you think?
