Hi Folks,

Having made the jump from Windows to a MacBook without looking back, I  
now have 7 iMacs to setup for use by Media students.

Would anyone like to share strategies for managing iMacs in a Windows  

I imagine I can use Apple Remote Desktop Admin for many tasks such as  
software maintenance, but how do people go about working with Windows  
user accounts? Manually creating accounts which mirror those on  
Windows obviously allows access to shared network resources. But is it  
possible to integrate mac user accounts with Windows accounts, through  
LDAP for example?

Any thoughts gratefully received!

Thanks and cheers
