On the cheap:
*Limit usage of OpenOffice as much as possible
*use firefox instead of mozilla
*reduce usage of heavy graphical apps like Tuxtype (though a nice app, 
it slows down the network)

For $
*more RAM
*320 SCSI drives

*set up second ltsp server / share the served IP addresses
**box 1 responds to 100-105
**box 2 resonds to 106-200 (or something like that)
*set /home to a single box and NFS all requests there
