Nice!  Cool things are happening...

Belinda, I just got an e-mail from someone who was looking to install LTSP
on edubuntu lucid and was asking what he needed beyond the instructions on this
page <https://wiki.ubuntu.com/edubuntu/installlucid> I had written.  I
referred him to this
page<https://wiki.ubuntu.com/edubuntu/installLTSPlucid>as well as the
basicsetup page<https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EdubuntuDocumentation/EdubuntuCookbook/BasicSetup>.
>From my point of view, a critical resource would be a complete set of
tutorials on setting up a LTSP lab in a school with Lucid.  It needs an
easily-updatable pathway to create a 10.10 BasicSetup page...  With a good
'Hub' page Edubuntu would be open to many more tech inclined educators...

Good luck
