[SOLVED]booting thin clients and firestarter

After nearly two weeks of agony trying to figure out why my thin clients
simply wouldn't boot (and what on earth it could have to do with
Firestarter), I emailed an IT consultant (Gerald Butler -
http://bffoss.com/bff/ to be precise) and asked for a professional
consultation. He didn't have any time for that, but he still offered some
ideas, one of which was to look at my switch (a simply 5-port Gigafast) as
it sounded like it could be blocking ICMP packets. Thinking about that, I
walked over to my switch and pulled its adapter plug, figuring I'd reset it.
That did it. Instant network! I still don't know exactly what went wrong.
But then, I don't really much care either.
Thanks again for all the help from this forum...I've learned an enormous
amount about Edubuntu from every step!
