Hi Gavin,

I installed Edubuntu 7.04 with bios raid active. I don't know yet if it
Next monday I'll disconnect one HDD and I will see what happens... If it
works, I'll the same with the other  HDD.
After that, I have to resolve a conflict between eth0 and eth1. If I have
enable one card, eth0 to swicht and LTSP, I have all the terminals working,
but without internet. But, if I enable eth1 I have internet on the server
but LTSP doesn't works...  Do you know which are the configuration files?
