@nhinkle good points. But there would be more than one server for the final result and there would be failover.

@maaartinus I care about more than just the final state because I may need to update the machine's setup remotely.

Thank you for your two cents. The end user will not need much support. This will not have any effect.

+1 This is the first answer that approaches a solution. Do you have more information about this?

That is not helpful to me and doesn't solve the problem. Nice try though.

Hmm... good point. I am not hosting sensitive material however. Also wouldn't password protection be possible to avoid them accessing the material?

+1 Yes preventing casual reinstallation is what i want to do. I would like a method that allows CD-ROM and USB usage though. No one wants a computer without a CD-ROM.

comment mounting remote drive works only when executed in line by line not from a script
I'm not sure where the logs are but perhaps the df -h was the command for the logs, and after I changed permissions to 755 it seems to work (as seen in the logs and testing), even though I could have sworn I had made it executable. Thanks for the help guys, I know that was a silly mistake.
