A bit off topic for this group, but I have a question.

Have you been setting up LTSP at the schools?  LTSP can potentially
extend the life of the computers many years and help the schools
significantly reduce the work to manage the many classroom computers
(with the trade-off of needed to manage a LSTP server).

I've only setup LTSP5 on a few machines at home and was quite impressed,
but I was using reasonably powerful clients.  Audio worked perfectly,
and I could plug in USB devices on the clients and access them.

Flash seems to be a requirement in schools (that use online
educational sites), but Flash seems to not always work perfectly on
the slower LTSP clients, according to the LTSP mailing list.
