Sorry, I have k12ltsp server now. You're right, I will get another
server for Win2k3 as terminal server for windows apps.

I have 25 clients, when they use it altogether (when using Powerpoint),
man it's really slow. I'm running MS Office XP.

There are limitations to it. I want to try running 25 rdesktop clients
if it will do better and considering also the price for TS licenses.
