RE: [K12OSN] Stability of K12LTSP

Thanks Caleb,

I'll have to look into this a little further, and see if the switch will 
allow trunking / bonding.

Your HOW-TO for the server end was really helpful, including a note about 
switch requirements would complete it, however I had all the work done in 
about 15 minutes (had to put a card in the server as well).

Thanks for your work.
