there is a howto on how to bind *buntu-stations to tjener. Same procedure is
possible for Debian clients....

Same as USB-Stick: Make a data partition (say /dev/hda6) and add it to fstab
(also possible during installation). Mount it to a sensible mount point
(like /data or /localdrive or /media/localdisk).
If you use a FAT file system (don't) there won't be any user specific rights.
With a ext3 fs, you could make it basically world rw-able, but any user was
able to create directories that are opaque to others.
Does this help?
