I'll just address this here.  If you're using the Computer Lounge
network, then there should be a caching web proxy, so that would
decrease the bandwidth requirements.  I'm assuming that packages are
fetched via http and ftp.

As far as networking, then I'm sure that one way or another, we can get
all of the computers on the same subnet.  Either with a wireless router
which provides dhcp, with a switch hanging off of it for the wired
computers, or by making sure there's a network card specifically for
packaging jam computers in the terminal server, and having the terminal
server provide dhcp.
