|Shawn -- you asked:
> 1) If I setup a user for the local use, and then want to move it
I've moved an entire collection (a grouping of materials in gsdl) from a windows server to a linux server by copying the correct directory structure and tweaking a couple of files; this would not work if you were moving between machines with a different architecture (32 vs 64 bit; big-endian vs little endian) I suspect, although I have not ever tried it. In the cases where it doesn't you need to regenerate a collection from the original materials.
> 2) One of the uses I have in mind is for a Plant Identification
I don't know for sure, but I would think so, depending on the specific materials to be stored and how volatile they are. Keeping track of lots of documents and adding lots is no problem; changing existing ones can be an issue.
I don't know of any examples, however.
