Default Desktop and input method setting in Edubuntu

Hi there!

I am newcomer to Ubuntu, and after becoming convinced with its power,
embarked on a project to set up computer labs at two local schools in
Malaysia. One lab, complete with 40 terminals, is now in operation,
running on Ubuntu 8.10.

Now, here is the problem.

Whenever I create a new user, it appears, I need to yet again set the
everything from the desktop, to resolution, to default fonts, to input
method. (The default language is Tamil, and SCIM is used to type in
Tamil characters.) Typically, this takes about 5 minutes each. There
are around 400 students in the school, and I'd need to create that
many users.

I've checked the manual, and did searches in the internet, but did not
come up with any way to set the default look and feel and input

I really hope someone in this user group could advise me on how I
could sort out this problem.

Many thanks,

(Kuala Lumpur)
