RE: [K12OSN] Linux at our school


Thanks for the reply, unfortunately I'm probably too stone headed about this
yet to understand what you mean by "install LTSP RPMs". Sorry. The
vocabulary isn't there yet.

So, could I run the full product off another partition, drive, or other
computer to get an idea of what it is? Does this make sense?

 Since you already have mandrake 9 installed, you will be able to
install the LTSP RPMs only and boot thin clients off your mandrake box.
 This will demo the concept of "booting thin clients" for you.  You will
have /some/ configuring to do, whereas K12LTSP works out-of-the-box.

 Understand though, that a full install of K12LTSP has many
pre-configured programs and tools specifically for a school network.

 It will be entirely feasible to use Mandrake 9 + LTSP to run your
school system, although those in this forum are /mostly/ using the
standard K12LTSP which is RedHat based, and some of your technical
queries maybe outside of our experience.
