I'm not advocating it as the best solution, only as one I understand and, as
a Linux novice, can implement (with a bit of help). I guess what I'm really
advocating isn't this particular solution, but some *simple* solution that
an enthusiast needn't be an expert to implement, a solution that allows for
the simple set up of a thin client server with local-apps. I've got to say
that you developers are doing a great job, Jaunty is a big step up from
Hardy from my nubie-perspective. Also true is that I easily spent 80-100
hours this summer, along with another 30+ hours of other, knowledgeable
Linux (though not to LTSP) users locally to get the server working like I
need it to work. Add to this the various people who have helped give
solve/add depth of understanding through this list server and through the
wiki. AND, especially alkisg who spent hours on #edubuntu as well helping
me solve problems I encountered/created in the setup process and sbalneav
who got Sabayon working. So, a semi-simple solution (from a novices point
of course) of setting up a robust server would be a great goal.

It took the network person a bit to even get the restarting to work, but it
