I'm an educator planning to have an afterschool lab with 10 thinclients that
will run on EDUBUNTU. The software I will be running includes OpenOffice,
Firefox and all the educational software that comes with EDUBUNTU (including
GCompris, Tuxmath, the KDE-EDUeducational  applications like Kstars,
Kalcium, Kplot, Kturtle, etc.). The following are the specs I have got for
thin clients and the server.

*HP Compaq t5135 Thin Client (plan to have 8-10 of these)
*Chipset: Northbridge: VIA CN700; Southbridge: VIA VT8237

Wake on LAN, PXE
Ports / Slots: 8 USB 2.0 ports, 1 serial, 1 parallel, 2 PS/2
