Yup we have a variety of machines that are from 333Mhz to 900Mhz,

So having the option would be nice

Choice is always a good thing :-)

So with 'local apps', On our test K12 server I've downloaded the
local_apps rpm and the local_netscape rpm, however there looks like
there is already a k12 specific local_apps rpm installed already, but I
can't find any trace of a k12 specific netscape or mozilla, so has any
one managed to get local apps running on a k12 server ?

It looks like the nis stuff is all set up by default and the workstation
picks up nis, ltsp is the domain. 

So what would the next steps be, for lets say mozilla.......
