Hi Again Ralph,
OK. I missed to tell you that for the thin-clients, it's Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
and I don't intend of upgrading it.
If I upgrade the thin clients, I am going to it manually by backing up
the users home folders and installing a newer version of Ubuntu
(or any other Debian Linux distro), so there are no worries in regards
I do a "bcc" to your e-mail address (or Peters' or Olis').
I won't do this again and also post to the lists' address and
not do "reply" . Right ?
I think I am going to test it on a test bed installation before doing
the "purge" command on the live system.
Thank you kindly for your patience,
Thank you all for your time,
