You will have to use NFS to share the /home of the users to all the  
nodes. And also the user information, maybe with NIS or LDAP, from a  
central server to have a unique namespace.

But with a changing /etc/hosts file, also the NFS server will have to  
be restarted or at least reloaded. And most likely you will lose any  
open files...

Which address range is normally used by the admin: just use 10.0.x.y  
or 168.192.x.y with static addresses in all your machines and don't  
tell the admin about it ;-) . Only the headnode must be known to  
login, and for this you can get a static address as you wrote.
