Default HELP: Final Semester Project

Ok. Here's the case.

Our college had a computer lab, a 30 PCs Vista-driven Pentium Dees. All the computers are connected to a D-Link router, using DHCP because we are particularly lazy.

Now here come the problem.

I was given a project, which I never learnt yet. Charming lecturer. The project consist of me doing planning of:

Do a LAN connected network in the lab.

The computers must be locked all the time. One of the PC must be transformed into a server, running an open source OS, preferably FreeBSD. The server must be able to control all the other 29 PCs, locking when it is unnecessary. When a student wants to use a computer, the student must provide the student ID to the server, and the server unlocks the Vista-driven PC within a distance.

Then here comes the super problem: I have to submit the project very,very soon.
I have no idea on where to begin with! :S.

Could someone help me? Providing as little as a tip or hint could help. Thanks!

Welcome to the world of DNS servers?
There was a man so wise
He jumped into
A sandy place
And burnt out both his eyes!
And when he knew his eyes were gone,
He offered no complaint.
He summoned up a vision
And made himself a saint.

Vision? What do you know about my vision? My vision would turn your world upside down, tear asunder your illusions, and send the sanctuary of your own ignorance crashing down around you. Now ask yourself, Are you ready to see that vision?
