Smart Board Software--anyone used it?

We have been running the SMART Notebook version on ltsp fat
clients. There have been some issues with the kernel drivers in standard
Hardy kernels, but newer kernels work better. Otherwise the experience
is pretty much the same as otherwise with the linux version of SMART
Notebook - text recognition is missing and flash objects are lacking,
but it is quite usable.

Installing the software in chroot requires some manual work as it is
installed using the graphical installer instead of a deb package. The
Essentials for Educators package is also quite big in size, so we
installed it on an nfs share instead of chroot to get the image size
more manageable.
