Wouldn't this allow everyone to see each others home directory? That could add another dimension to copying someones answers.. Plus I'd be extremely cautious about what was being hosted in the way of websites by the dearly beloved clientel. We have enough hassles keeping an eye out on what they're sharing using pen drives, let alone giving them an easier method like their own website.

Early thoughts on this.
You could set up Apache so that it would browse the users home directory. We have this set up to servername://~username/
Staff could then browse that folder for the pupil they are interested in. Pupils can also use this to set up there own websites.
Another possible solution is to make a link ln - s from the group folder to somewhere on a staff share. If permissions are set to other read execute on the home drives then surely you can browse these from that share.
Early in the morning for me so i probably have missed the plot ;)

I would like teachers to be able to see students directories from a Windows machine through Samba--but only directories inside the home directory. Later I want to refine it to only their students.
Teachers are in a group called staff.
Students are in 4 groups (s2005, s2006 etc)
I really don't want all of them on the server itself with root access.
