Yes, and they do it with LDAP, and NFS home directories.

This would mean that someone who wanted to run more than one Edubuntu
server would need to run 2 distros: 1 Skolelinux as the authentication
server, and then the Edubuntu servers.

Which means running 2 distros.  Now, certainly, what's being done for
Edubuntu should allow for an Edubuntu server to authenticate AGAINST an
Skolelinux box, some sites might not want to run more than one distro,
so we need to include the server functionality as well.
