[K12OSN] I need your opinion about these machines

Oops...this wasn't supposed to go to you...I was asking someone else their
opinion...oh well....LOL...the mind is the first thing to go

I need your opinion....given these specs....do ya' think these will work
with K12LTSP?  I have plenty of network cards....so if they have PCI
slots, then that's not an issue.  My biggest concern is the video cards
and the general architecture....any opinions?  I could use them if they'd
work for terminals for K12LTSP.  I need more terminals.

Let me know your opinions....especially about the VESA Trident
cards....(whether or not they'll work)
