Yes, but are you using EXT3 as the filesystem on those machines? In many (most?) multi-user systems, you're likely to have a big fileserver serving files via NFS or equivalent to various servers.
Yes and no: The home directories of the users are normally mounted via NFS (the NFS servers are not always Linux: NetApps and and Solaris boxes are also used), but the Linux servers (usually RHEL) to which people log in use ext3. Because of the various local shared directories, multiuser issues in ext3 are still relevant.
