Cool.  Let us know how it works.  The only time I have even seen a Mac
Mini was at LW in Boston.  I remember the Gentoo guys next door to LTSP
tried to get one to work but weren't successful.  I think the problem
was they weren't using Open Firmware to boot and the N key trick wasn't
perfected yet.

How do you plan on running them?  A local OS X with the option to
netboot ltsp?  Just curious as I have about 100 flat screen iMacs to
deploy this summer and using a machine with 40GB drives and 640MB RAM as
a thin only.  Problem here with booting ltsp via netboot is that I will
also have a netinstall/netboot osx server running.  So I would need a
boot menu to do the trick.
