saves a file to "My Documents" and it's not designed to be
multi-access. That is, I wouldn't make all the computers point to a
common "My Documents".
Secondly, patrons may not realize that by placing a file in "My
Documents" temporally they are placing the file where any other user
at the center can see it. Given that a PAF file can contain names,
birth dates and mother's maiden name, I didn't want to surprise the
patron that's trying to be careful with their family's information.

think I can reset the Patron Desktop to be "read only" without having
to move it to the server.
One thing I did do is separate Patron from the "All Users" for the
Start Menu. I then created my own Start Menu for Patron. So they
don't see those "uninstall" icons, or any other icon I don't want them
to see. Plus I don't have to go clearing unwanted icons after I
install a software package.
But probably the most important thing I've done is set Patron to be
just a User, not "Power User" as shipped from SLC. This severely
limits what the patrons can do with the machine.
