So you first log into an admin account on the server and set up every printer on campus.
 Then you create the /etc/ltsp-printers.conf file based on the names assigned to the
printers created.

Where does the $LTSP_CLIENT variable come from?  I tried simply typing the $LTSP_CLIENT
at the command line of a Edubuntu client and received command not found.
