All our terminals are Trayloader iMacs.

Getting the Grape-Trayloader G3 iMacs (266Mhz, 333Mhz) to boot is  
easy w/ Open Firmware.

To get the original Bondi-Trayloader G3 iMacs (233Mhz) you need to  
get your hands on an OS9 CD.  Boot from that and go to the Control  
Panels under the Apple menu.  There choose start-up device and select  
Network Boot.  It will give you an error and tell you it can't be  
done.  Say "Thank you" to the nice gentleman and shut down.  When you  
restart without a CD you'll see Penguins!!!!!
