Hi Debbie,

Instead of "downgrading" them to Win .. anything ... why not upgrade to 
K12LTSP thin client system and use them as thin-client to access a W2K 
server via rdesktop or vnc ?
Win 9x may not be any better "playing" in a network, whereas linux 
thin-client will happily preform.
If you need more info or layout details, just write back, we have a 
great bunch of people who'll be delighted to help... :-)
