Maybe it's common maybe it's not. I had a lot of trouble getting LTSP to
work. So I downloaded K-12 LTSP. I installed it on a test box (P3 550, 132
mb RAM). The hardest part was changing the CD's :-). Then I started a
terminal (an old P200 Dell) and in half a minute I had a beautiful K12
starting screen. I logged in and could start Abiword and did some typing.
So, no trouble here, we are convinced!
