Workgroup Manager Help

I have been put in charge of our new Suite of 21 iMacs and an X Server.


It has been integrated with our existing Active Directory Domain and all the iMacs are bound etc.


What I am doing is configuring the Dock using WGM and it works as I like though I will tweak things as I go on.


At the moment we are using a limited finder and I am placing allowed apps in the Dock.


I have a couple of questions for now and would like advice on the best way forward.


1- The Dock is set up for the iMacs but when users log on to an iBook G4 without those apps they see question marks. What is the best way to manage this? The iBooks are not powerful enough to run the same software, plus some of the software is Intel only and wouldn't run anyway. Should I not add them to the Dock but give them the apps some other way?


2- I tried to allow apps on the Computer Group rather than the User Group, but nothing I added to the Dock showed up because I assume the User settings overrode them. Can I easily manage 2 different builds in WGM in this way?
