All above should be preconfigured during installation and needs a tool to be
easily activated by a teacher / admin.

which is touched by this too.
So preconfiguration of the usage of samba at server-side-storage is needed.
Therefore a concept has to be discussed and written down to rules
(partitioning, quota, acl, smb.conf, ldap, ...) which places are served for
usage with samba AND nfs so that a user, whereever he logs in, on a
WinBox(9x or NT+) or a linux box, gets his homefolders AND the other
