A small LTSP network setup

to exactly your situation.



I second that, exactly.

Hi Matt & David,

Now that i have received the donated hardware and confirmed their
specs, this solution would be the best option to me as well. I went
to the school on Friday and picked up the donated hardware.

In total i received 10 computers(5 each of the below) & 1
networked laser printer:

5x desktops with Celeron 2.4 Ghz, 2GB and 40 GB HD

5 towers with Intel Pentium D 2.53 Ghz, 2 GB RAM & 60 GB HD.

Plus 1 Xerox Phaser 840 laser printer with a few spare toners.
Untested, but said to be working before being placed in a storage. I
am not familiar with these and don't know how well they are
supported in linux if at all they are. I only saw Solaris drivers on
Xerox's website.

I have only had time to take out a couple of the computers, clean
them out and test. Both worked well and hopefully the remainder will
be just as fine. I will have some time next weekend and inspect them
