Fedora 10 as server and clients are Windows Xp

Hi, I'm setting up a network for a school. The network has 11 client computers (windows xp) and a server ( fedora 10) All I need to do is have a share for all the children to use. (this I did by adding each client to the workgroup specified on samba then I just map the drive). The issue turns out to be that I have over 300 users. The users don't always use the same computer therefore I need the users to be registered on all 11 clients. How can I do this? I have been searching and I've not gotten anywhere. How can I add the computers to a domain instead of a workgroup? What can I use?

I've never managed 300 users however considering a school has a turnover you'll probably want samba working as a PDC with ldap or 389 as it's password backend. Personally, I'd use centos & ldap on that one.

Nope, I haven't used this one:
