Asunto: Public computer control

We are installing linux on public library network

I have two easy questions:

1) how can I control time of a session, i.e. to have logout automatically after
a certain time from login??
2) how can I make all personal data flushed at
logout??

Any applications available??

Any experience in library installation
of Fedora???

Tnx

Antonio

It's kind of rude killing a like that session if someone is still working though...
