Fedora in the Office
Fedora 7 was used for hands one and studying for earning the Linux+. Coming form a Windows world it was hard. Studied and prepared hard then failed. Studied harder-then pasted.
My question: I would like to deploy Fedora 9 to an office of 10-15 office professionals but how do I control their desktops from a centralized location.
Windows uses Active Directory for user accounts and group policies etc...
SUSE has Zenworks and other tools to manage computers on your LAN.
I haven't heard how Fedora manages computers/users remotely.
Fedora is great on a single computer but beyond that..?
I need to be able to have control similar to group policies and WSUS.
Last month I started looking at SUSE because of this issue.
Would prefer Fedora.
Practical Task Scheduling Deployment

One of the best things about the UNIX environment (aside from being stable and efficient) is the vast array of software tools available to help you do your job. Traditionally, a UNIX tool does only one thing, but does that one thing very well. For example, grep is very easy to use and can search vast amounts of data quickly. The find tool can find a particular file or files based on all kinds of criteria. It's pretty easy to string these tools together to build even more powerful tools, such as a tool that finds all of the .log files in the /home directory and searches each one for a particular entry. This erector-set mentality allows UNIX system administrators to seem to always have the right tool for the job.
Cron traditionally has been considered another such a tool for job scheduling, but is it enough? This webinar considers that very question. The first part builds on a previous Geek Guide, Beyond Cron, and briefly describes how to know when it might be time to consider upgrading your job scheduling infrastructure. The second part presents an actual planning and implementation framework.
