    I would like to use one mac to power multiple users simultaneously instead of having to use one mac per terminal. Basically all each user will do is run safari to access a webpage on a local network drive.


    Here is a diagram and here is a solution for windows

    I'd like to do it with a powermac G5 or similar to keep the costs down. Any ideas or solutions?

    The viewing stations need some kind of a Xserver like capability (similar to the functionality of the second graphics card o in your PC example) -- i.e., they can't be dumb terminals, but can be, for example, low priced PCs/Macs/... .

    See

    or
    http://www.testplant.com/multidesktop.html and similar others by searching for --> multiple simultaneous users on os x <-- and ignore the text only terminal solutions.
