Remote Desktop Connection Xserve Profiles
Does anyone know if its possible to give each user a profile on an xserve box so that they can VNC or remote desktop connect in to the profile and be given their own instance of a mac Desktop, the hardware would mac it just wouldn't connecting to a unique mac desktop
If thats not possible is there some easy way of giving uses remote access to a mac desktop without having to wire up individual mac desktops?

It sounds like you are looking for thin clients. This is not something built into OS X server, as far as I know. Here are some possibilities.
1. It sounds like you have individual Macs. Why not use PHDs?
2. 3rd party: http://www.aquaconnect.net/?page%5Fid=26
3. NetBoot, but if you have a Mac that is available for netbooting, you might as well use PHDs.
Only one person can be using a machine at a time, so PHDs would satisfy local logins with user specific profiles or "Desktops."
Maybe I am not interpreting your wants correctly, but one of these would fit the bill.

I'm not familiar with PHD's can you explain it?
I'm lookng for a thin client solution with the mac server hardware providing the power and mac applications to end users the aqua connect may be 1 solution but would like to keep it to apple if possible
I don't have a suite of mac's so netboot wouldn't apply
I guess the best say to describe is apple offer their lab in a cart with the apple cart, I was wondering if they offered the same thing but with just an xserve to have a lab in a server slot
