    CentOS does work with Samba, we have XRDP on all of our CentOS servers.. for thin client environments they are joined to the domain too using the program I posted.

    As far as allowing them to login with their Active Directory credentials the instructions in the link below will work for any Debian/Ubuntu distro.

    https://wiki.debian.org/Authenticati...ctiveDirectory


    Also, you may want to try CentOS (Community version of RedHat) as it offers Active Directory integration during the installation and works flawlessly - I have started moving our web servers (and my work desktop) away from Ubuntu and onto CentOS for this very reason.

    You can't go far wrong with good old CentOS.

    Good luck!

    For future reference I believe the CentOS iso can be written directly to a USB drive and booted using dd, eg sudo dd if=centos.iso of=/dev/sdd

    I only have a 4gb DVD drive :-( that didn't work so going for the classic DVD method.

    I am going to install CentOS, Setup AD Authentication, Figure our how to map a folder to their AD Home Drive, Install the Programmes needed on a Gnome interface and then setup XRDC. Hopefully that should be it but I may be back for more help. I will keep you all posted either way.

    You could just install CentOS minimal and download the packages you want... that way the installer will fit on a CD.

    - - - Updated - - -

    XRDP setup is easy... 'yum install xrdp' - you can lockdown CentOS a bit like you can with Windows via GP, you can use Sabayon. It's a prile builder so you can strip down the profile and add it to user groups works over AD great.

    yum install sabayon

    Ok. XRDC may be a no go on CentOS. Installed Debian but had to leave it until tomorrow. Just out of interest has anyone got the MIT app inventor emulator working in Linux?

    @BKGarry - VNC in Centos is yum install vnc-server - or in recent releases...it's yum install tigervnc-server... then use vncserver command and type a password twice.... you may need to open up the ports in the firewall (system-config-firewall) in CLI.

    PM me if you'd like to go into anything in detail or if you want to chat about any of the CentOS stuff - I'm sure i Can be of help!!

    The blank screen is probably because you may need to install X-Windows and the GNOME or XFCE desktop.
