Re: [school-discuss] the nic
The NIC is pretty cool. It runs from a CD-Rom and provides a pretty
trouble free computing environment. The other cool thing is that NICs
support network booting. Which means that they work very well as K12LTSP
thin-clients. I use one when I do my demonstrations. Just set the CMOS
to boot from the network and they'll boot right up in about 15 seconds
NICs are used in schools all over the place. Oracle has a program where
they will give your school 30 - 50 NICs. It's called Help US Help.
Many schools are getting these and using them with K12LTSP.
