I have made changes to base-files with the included files /etc/lsb-release
and /etc/motd. I think it's the reason why gnome-system-tools detected that
the platform is unknown.

Another reason, maybe is I'm using qemu under Windows with kqemu enabled.
I'm using my home pc, with no cdrom, I'll have to wait for the holidays
before I can use the school's facilities to burn the image.

About the OS, it's a simplified ubuntu distribution, with a lot of custom
graphical wizards to configure voip and stuff. It also has a welcome center
and screencast tutorials.  It's a graphical version of GNOME with tons of
wizards that aims to make life in linux easy.
