That is great info Lee.

Thank you so much. I will research your references. Although, I did thought
about using Samba for all Linux Environment for ease of use sake.

Thank you

Mixed, or mixed up? ;)

I have been using retired Wyse Winterms.  (You have to get an x86 one) They
are cheaper, and easier to find here.  Not sure in Indonesia. 
These models work...

But if you need to go soekris, most of the current models will work. 
But they will be slow.  Not even fast-Ethernet speeds.  About 20-40 meg
without any VPN work...

You can use LDAP for Linux authentication.  Also samba4, but that seems
silly in an all linux environment.  But if you truly want a portable
desktop, look at LTSP (Linux Terminal Server Project) which is a thin
netboot system on a single server.
