We were lucky having samba domain from the beginning, when our school
had only a few windows workstations. From samba 3.0.0 we were able to
apply policies via \\PDC\Netlogon\NTConfig.POL based on our users group
membership (e.g. students, teachers, technical stuff, administrators).
The machine settings at our site are quite the same. For emulating the
GPO offered machine startup scripts installed XYNTService which runs a
C:\run.bat as Local System Account. It connects to a network share and
runs a script from then.
