You could use iscsi and boot all computers to a single drive.

Basically, if the computers are networked together, you need to install the hard drive as an internal hard drive in one of the computers and then designate the hard drive as a share drive (turn on file and print sharing, then right click on the drive in my computer, select Properties, share tab and designate t as a share drive. Before you do this however, you should name the drive something like "Public Drive", "Shared Drive" or "Storage Drive" so it will be clear to everyone that they are saving to the correct drive and not some other folder that happens to be shared. You should also make folders within the drive for each user and for any shared projects to keep the drive from getting to be a mess and make things easier to find.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Every computer absolutely needs its own hard drive in order to load its operating system and be able to run. Every computer absolutely needs its own operating system and a license to run it. The only way to get around paying for an operating system is to switch from Microsoft (Windows) to a free download of one of the many Linux distributions available as your operating system (installed on each computer on its own hard drive).
