Hi Holmes,

Actually, my bigger concern is people standing up stuff on the network 
willy-nilly without first going through their IT folks.  I'm not saying 
that a Live CD is a bad idea or that donations shouldn't be used.  Quite 
the contrary; I think using donations is a great idea and did so myself 
for a K12LTSP lab.  What I was saying--and still maintain--is that the 
IT folks need to be consulted.  About 50-60% of the network problems 
that I encounter would not occur if folks simply did this.
