Trying in Edubuntu

This would be wonderful to have in Edubuntu. I am using Edubuntu for public access computing, with several users connecting through thin clients.

In the home directory I have: kevin patron4 patron5 patron6

The tutorial says to do this :

#!/bin/bash

rm -f /root/Desktop/clean_all.tar

tar -cpPf /root/Desktop/clean_all.tar /home/all


but , if i do that it will also restore my kevin directory right?
Is there a way to exclude the kevin directory from the tarball? Or is there a way for me to put all of my public profiles in a directory like all? How would I do that?

Thanks so much,

Also, the tutorial mentions that to get the restore script to run at bootup, the bootmisc.sh should be modified. Would this work by modifying /etc/rc.local?
