    Nope...not sure where to get one, if I didn't build it myself, etc. 
I'm using a Jammin-125 from disklessworkstations.com.  Nice hardware,
actually.  It's more capable than I can support (things like sound...)
They're just playing things on the main console.

    Yep; that's what I thought I'd do.  But one problem I had with the
base LTSP project was that every major release required a re-install. 
Minor updates, I'd use the regular apt-get plan, but when, say, 3.2.x
comes out, and I want to upgrade...will I be able to?

    It's a great project. A lot of good guys that don't mind helping,
that do the documentation, and all that. I just hope I can fins a way to
help pull my weight on it.
