I am thinking of using OES. I have one question though. Is it possible
log a windows XP computer into the OES directory? I want to be able to

have a user to log into a computer on the network and then receive
privileges such as administrative and user on that system when they
log in
so they can install or not be able to install programs and ect. This
help with system administration. Is it possible to do this without
active directory or a windows server all together?
