[K12OSN] Slow speed

Hello people!

I run a K12LTSP 4.2.0 setup at one of the schools I have the computer 
responsibility for. The server is an old PC with the following configuration:

- Intel P 4 1.6 GHz, 1 GB RAM, 80 GB IDE harddisk WD with 8 MB cache. 100 
Mbit/s network.

The server shall serve about 10 – 15 thin client computers. The thin client 
computers are old computers with specifications running from Pentium 166 
MHz with 64 MB RAM and better.

Before I began to run K12LTSP I used Skolelinux 
(<http://www.skolelinux.no/>http://www.skolelinux.no/). The users at the 
school liked that solution, but it was a night mare for me to maintain the 
network. I did not get any complaint about the speed when I run Skolelinux.

Now with K12LTSP as system the people at the school are complaining about 
the speed. High response time when they shall start or use normally 
programs etc.

Where would you think is the biggest bottleneck in my setup? Should I have 
had a better server? Which parts of the server has the most importance for 
the speed at the thin clients?
