Go ahead and send them down if you want.  This summer I will be updating
Cotter High School to a pretty cool setup.  All lab macs will be running
OS 10.4 and netbooted, all teacher/staff machines will be running OS
10.4 and setup from net install.   All Windows/Mac/Linux will be
authenticated to a central SAMBA/LDAP server and have roaming profiles
between all three platforms.  And I will finally have a dedicated 25
machine lab here for K12LTSP only.  Plus all other macs will be able to
connect to the LTSP server with X -query scripts.  I am excited.

Not to mention with the upgrades to newer machines (all iMac lamp style
or iMac Indigo) I will have about 250 iMac Bondi's to use as thin
clients somewhere.  Very Cool.
