Sorry to say, but for ease of use and set-up speed you are probably going to be best staying with NT (well win 2K server).

If you have the time to invest in teaching yourself then it would be well worth going for a Linux server, not only is it cheaper, but it can do anything that windows can do with bells on it.

If you are seriously thinking about taking Linux to the desktop (and there is no reason that you shouldn't) then it makes sence to invest the time in creating a stable Linux backbone.

chfn - change your finger information SYNOPSIS
chfn [ -f full-name ] [ -o office ] [ -p office-phone ] [ -h home-phone ] [ -u ] [ -v ] [ username ] DESCRIPTION
chfn is used to change your finger information. This information is stored in the /etc/passwd file, and is displayed by the finger pro- gram.
