I have two distinct networks or should I say that my K12LTSP network is a
sub-network of my larger one.  My main network is 10.0.0.x served by a
DHCP server (SME/E-Smith) and then I have two NIC's in my K12LTSP
box....one goes to it's own network and serves DHCP with 192.168.0.x  the
other connects to the main network and gets and address from the 10.0.0.x
side.  Simple to configure since I simply have certain switches dedicated
to K12LTSP and feeding to certain ports in classrooms.  In my case...each
room has at least two drops...so one is the 10.0.0.x net and the other is
the K12LTSP net....I use little Amer.com 5 port switches to expand in the
classrooms.  With aliasing I've found a way to get Windows boxes on either
side of the network to talk to a common Samba/LDAP PDC.  Works great and
still allows me to be a "purist"  ;-)
