I'm curious about the not being able to authenticate part. I'm getting ready to deploy a gutsy thin client myself. I have it all ready to go but need to get our district tech guys to set up the Active Directory authentication part. Are you saying in your experience this is broken? I sure hope not. I've been trying to convince them that edubuntu is a better option than Suse (which we used last year and did not work all that well).
