School network infrastructure

The next release of Edubuntu aims to provide services for the whole
school, and in that context I'd like to introduce Jo Harris and Paul
Sharrad to the Edubuntu community, along with their Karoshi project,

Jo is Network Manager at Dover Grammar School for Boys in England, where
she installed GNU/Linux servers using Karoshi. Paul also manages the IT
setup at another English school, and both are active members of our
Schoolforge-UK community.

I'll let Jo describe Karoshi in another post, but I very much hope that
this project can contribute to the Dapper release of Edubuntu.

By the way, I believe "karoshi" means something like "death of the
corporate warrior", referring to those who steadfastly avoid Linux.
