I teach in one of those schools that Alan just mentioned.  I build my 
own classroom ltsp setup with a small server and 8 terminals/thin 
clients.  Life got very easy because of the security and such provided 
as a normal part of the ltsp operating system.  No more reloading 
Windblows software everyday because a student decided to trash something.
It works and the price can't be beat.
Hi Al
