    I have a small network at home, and am looking for a good program to manage the user accounts in the network. I would like it so the user accounts are saved onto the server, and when someone logs onto there account on a client computer, it goes through the server instead of having different accounts on all the computers.

    First off it would help to know what OS this is running. I will assume Windows since you didn't specify.

    It sounds like what you need to do is setup a Domain, or Active Directory. This will alow you to create domain users on one computer and setup the rest of the clients to authenticate against that machine.

    There are many writeups on how to do this. Check google for Microsoft Domains or Active Directory.
