Linux question.

Thanks for the fast response :)

I've got /home mounted with NFS at the moment, my problem is the login config files and so on. When a machine goes to login, it tries to login locally, correct? I need to setup each machine to try to login to the server, rather than locally.

Like VaKo says. Use LDAP. Check out the PAM modules, as that will tie in your authentication layer with externally available services.

But are you REALLY sure you want to do this? I mean, you've just admitted to wanting a single point of failure.

Yep. Ldap would be the best solution. NIS is also a good solution for network authentification but only works on Unix/Linux machines.

It's not to hard to configure.
