Help! Would you recommend running ltsp on Ubuntu 8.04 or 8.10?

8.04 is simply more stable, so maybe better. Try to generate 32 bit
client images for those clients. If you don't have any 64 bits
clients, then, it's a lot easier.

Please, take a look here:

They will perfectly be able to connect to any 64bit server. The
processor has nothing to do with this matter, it's all about network

This is a very common problem. I hope you get it working now, if not,
I'd need more information.

Good luck!
