I found that in some cases when upgrading from 2.1, you had to manually
run /opt/ltsp/templates/k12linux/K12Linux-LTSP-initialize
I added a small patch to the installer to automatically run this script
at the end of an upgrade.

I also found that when upgrading from 2.0, it was possible for some of
the 3.0 LTSP packages to not be installed. I fixed that by patching the
installer so that if it finds that "ltsp_core" is installed during an
upgrade, it automatically selects all LTSP packages to be installed.

Red Hat 8.0 does not ship with MP3 support.  You can add MP3 support
after the install is complete. The easiest way is to use the "apt-get"
utility to get the xmms-mp3 package:

	apt-get install xmms-mp3

I'll have to write up a little HOWTO on this one. The quick-and-dirty
answer is to edit /usr/share/applications/gnome-abiword.desktop and
change this line:

	Categories=Application;Office;WordProcessor;Applications;X-Red-Hat-Extra;

to this:

	Categories=Application;Office;WordProcessor;Applications;X-Red-Hat-Base;
