Very cool!  I suspected as much and I'm not afraid of doing it myself
either....I was simply wondering.  I'm agonizing over little things this
summer as I have nothing to "invent" like last summer when I had to
completely rewrite my Samba/LDAP setup...thanks to the guys at Samba
changing everything around  *bastards  ;-)*  Now I'm getting ready to
implement my first TRULY thin-client lab (the little devices like the Term
150's I already have)....so I'm trying to figure out the best way to go. 
While I have your attention...what's the sound issue with the new Term
140?  Has it been figured out?  It's an attractive model, but the sound is
a MUST in a school.  Just curious...
