Dear Nigel,

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.
