    Dual boot Windows 7 and Edubuntu - Windows is all setup, how to setup Ubuntu?

    Hi all

    We've got our Windows 7/Server 2008 R2 network all setup, but I'm a firm believer in "teach how to word process, not how to use Word" so am looking at a dual boot affair with Edubuntu.

    I'd like the users to logon to the server, as they do currently with Windows, but aren't sure how to set it up. I've got an old "box" I can use as an Ubuntu server. I'm just not sure where to go from here.

    Can anyone point me to any guides they've used, youtube videos or anything like that? I've found server setup guides, but nothing about setting up users or shares. Even better, can we use our Windows server? Is there a way to replicate AD?

    Thanks for any help.

    Tim

    Getting Linux to access windows shares is easy - Samba is what you'll use.

    Getting an Ubuntu server to synch with AD, or getting an ubuntu client to auth against AD - good luck with that. I've never managed it.
