Thanks for the quick responses everyone :)

I'll give 2.0.4b a try this weekend, but I'm still a bit concerned as
all the users profiles seemed to go away with 2.0.4a (At least that's
what they told me...). We'll see how it goes.

I was also wondering what the status of group permissions was. What's
the easiest way (if any) to lock down the machine so that users can only
run software and access their shared drive? My primary concern is that
currently users can install software on the machines (NT4, SP3).
