how to enable ubuntu client to log in over a ubuntu server through network

I run a cyber cafe and I have six computers in my shop. Dual boot (windows & ubuntu )is active on each machines. I want to ,enable all users to login on my machine only and not on their user machine ( I am running ubuntu server in my machine ) through network. users are enjoying the ubuntu desktop 16.04 ( mine is ubuntu server 16.04 LTS )

Should I configure network boot process in BIOS, if so, then how ? what things I have to follow and to be done respectively to build this system ?

I am in need of a clear guideline, kindly let me know it.

thanks in advance,

The setup you desire is what is called a thin client. LTSP is available on Ubuntu last I checked. See also
