I've made a few minor changes. First, my package naming scheme (or lack
there of ;-) caused problems for the Red Hat Network. I renamed every
single K12LTSP-specific package. Hopefully I have everything right this
time. Thanks for your patience Todd!

* I also grew tired of fighting with GDM and set KDM as the default.
* A list of available video & mouse drivers has been added to lts.conf,
  as per Shawn Powers' suggestion.
* Gcompris was updated to version 1.2.1.
* The latest blacklists were added to squidGuard. 
* Mozilla was updated from the version in 8.0.92 to the version in 8.0.93.
* I remembered to add the source code for rfb & xclass

The updated packages are available here:
  ftp://k12linux.mesd.k12.or.us/pub/K12LTSP/testing/RPMS/

This time around, I made ISOs as well:
  ftp://k12linux.mesd.k12.or.us/pub/K12LTSP/testing/iso/
  rsync k12linux.mesd.k12.or.us::K12LTSP-beta/
