Sorry you had to do the re-install.  I learned my lessons last summer  
when i spent MANY dozens of hours setting up the server.  This  
summer, every time I get to a major stage in the setup (major to me,  
perhaps trivial to another), I make a quick copy of the entire hard  
drive.  I've already had to re-image the hard drive once this summer  
but it was a simple deal :-).

On that note, if anyone installs Edubuntu from the live CD would you  
check this page and make improvements such as extra considerations or  
improve wording etc?  The more the instructions are reviewed and  
improved, the more reliable and useful they will be to beginner  
Edubuntu/LTSP people.   Also, I just finished an initial draft of  
adding LTSP to a basic Edubuntu install: "InstallingLTSPlucid".   
Again, if you need to do this process or are willing to do a test of  
the page in a VM, please do so and improve it so others with less  
knowledge than yourself can benefit!
