For 30 thin clients working concurrently, I'd suggest you probably need
more RAM in the server.  I'd look to upgrade to 4GB.  In the grand scheme
of things, it's not that expensive to do (at least if you don't buy from

No problem.

Without meaning to sound awkward, the best way to move forward is for you
to describe your problem(s) in an email on this list, either one at a time
or together but clearly separated within the email.  Be as descriptive as
possible.  This means more people will be involved in the conversation,
more people will learn from it and more people will contribute to it.

Also, you may want to post these questions to the edubuntu-users mailing
list.  Everyone on that list is using edubuntu and it included the
developers of edubuntu so if there's a standard edubuntu problem we might
not be aware of it, but they would.
