How do you like Win4Lin?  Can you give me some details of how you use it, and if you've found any shortcomings?

If your legacy apps run under Win98, you might look at Win4Lin.  It does cost <br>money, about $80 I think.  Load that on your K12ltsp server, and then you can <br>run your Windows apps on the terminals.  I have a couple of applications that <br>only run on Windows, and I use Win4Lin for them.<br><br>Petre<br><br>Debbie Schiel wrote:<br>> <br>>> No what I meant was to have a W2K server on your K12ltsp network, then <br>>> the kids could access the "legacy" - (seems odd to talk about legacy & <br>>> Win in the same sentence ....) app via rdesktop.
