Thank for this plugin, I have testing on Ubuntu Hardy RC and one correction
the powerdev group have missing in /etc/group on Hardy
this ligne "chroot $ROOT usermod -G
admin,adm,dialout,cdrom,floppy,audio,dip,plugdev,scanner,powerdev $TMP"
do "chroot $ROOT usermod -G
admin,adm,dialout,cdrom,floppy,audio,dip,plugdev,scanner $TMP"

a machine with 512Mo and Amd Turion, this LTSP environment run very well
