creating fat 'thin' clients with ltsp

Hi Jim,
   You might want to make a note where exactly this happens, so we can look
at what triggers it. Like I mention in the wiki, I had to do apt-get install
-f and dpkg --configure a couple of times for various reasons. The first
time I did apt-get install edubuntu-desktop, I had to take out cupsys from
init.d before it would install properly. But I've traced almost all these
errors to sys and proc not being mounted or unmounting themselves during

Happy ltsp dieting ;-)
