Well, it seems to work now. With original Ubuntu 8.04 it did not.

I have to tell xorg.conf to the mobo.

[00:22:15:15:4B:4C]
X_CONF = /etc/X11/asus-eee-xorg.conf

[00:1C:C0:47:E2:C0]
X_CONF = /etc/X11/xorg.conf

But there is nothing special on that xorg.conf? Without it I got
automatically 1600x1200 for 20" LCD (native is 1680x1050).

This feels slower than Asus Eee PC?

Anyway, it works perfect (resolution, sound and USB-stick):

Have a small LTSP Ubuntu (8.04) system at work.* Was working on Friday
when we left.* Over the weekend, I apt-get update via ssh from home and
this morning we are seeing BusyBox (initramfs) prompts on our clients.*
Keyboard and monitor (on
server) allows , but clients see only BusyBox
prompts.

I am searching forums now, but need to get fixed today.* Any suggestion
regarding what is wrong?

I'm setting up a new lab from scratch, using ubuntu 8.04.
I have about 30 pc in the
lab and in the classrooms.
I want every user* (about 100) have his own login and home.
In the old lab I set up things in a veeeery awkward way* (little or no
time at disposition) with NFS (always working, no problems at all) and
simply copying /etc/passwd /etc/shadow /etc/group in every pc.
Non I've got some time to spend and I want to do it the right way.
NFS server seems to me the simplest way.
I need some advice regarding centralized authentication.
It seems to me that ldap is a bit complicated to set up, and has
features I really don't need: all I want is a server giving everyone a*
login-password-home and nothing else.
Are there any alternatives?

TIA
Antonello

Is there anything other than this X_CONF setting you used? The reason I ak
is because I am getting errors before X.. I get:
'/sbin/modprobe' abnormal exit
... usb... device...
Last message on client screen: USB Universal Host Controller Interface
driver v3.0
(then nothing else -- hangs)

Note: My Ubuntu LTSP installation works with other clients (VIA C7 and Intel
D201GLY) with no problems.

Thanks :-)
