it is not possible to control all hard disks since you are running windows
98.  in fact, there is no way to control all win98's hard disks.  unless you
force all users to save files on the samba server shares, where you can make
easy to have its own profile folder alwong with file folder.  but no way to
control.  run windows nt, and use ntfs.

well, you can use this linux box to ack as a gateway server.

i would recommend you to read all DOCS that come with but source package.
most of your questions are pretty well documented in there.
