RE: [K12OSN] local USB devices (flash drive) on K12LTSP 4.4 (using automounter)

I've been extending the localdevice support into using automount (on the server end) (I didn't like the way it smbmounted into local user directories... I ended up w/ too many dangling/dead mounts after kids logged out improperly).  The automount stuff is done, and now I'm working on integrating it into Nautilus under "Computer" as "My Disks" (The trick is to modify the user's gconf connected_servers entry for "My Disks" to point to the /media/localdev/<terminalname> location).  I'm thinking of making an /etc/sysconfig/localdev-automount configuration file that controls some of the behaviors.  It does the /media/localdev/<terminalname> securely in the sense that it grants ownership of the files to the user logged into that terminal, and not anyone else.   I'll see if I can hack on it some more this week.  I need to finish it.

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...
