Hi Alan
have setup fedora core 4 network with 22 thin clients with pent I & II upto 
233mhz with 128mb of 72pin ram and 1-3gb harddrives. the problem is getting 
the teachers to use it as they are not familiar with linux, but encourage 
you to try it. peace.

Hi group
The district's head of instructional technology has asked me to compile
a "how can old computers be used again" using linux and open source. I
believe it's part of a county-wide effort to provide employment to
(twin-plant/maquila) displaced workers. I can rant about how-to, but I
am in short supply of links to disticts and communities where this is
being done. I also know there are vendors in the list that may want to
make sure their contribution appears, as the district will most likely
farm out the initial training and workplace set-up.

I will gladly share the results with the group, as Open Source's mantra
is about sharing information and resources.
