I tried it. I am more used to editing xorg.conf by hand (from
slackware days). In any case it made no difference. X seems to start,
just no desktop. I get a perfect blank brown screen. I can move my
mouse but that's it.  I started another virtual console and ran
#apt-get update
to which I discovered my eth0 was not setup properly. The docs state
to set your nic to I found this confusing since I
thought this would be my internal network nic ip. Apparently it's not.
Surprised they don't just instruct us to let dhcp to set the external
nic like k12ltsp does. Hence, edubuntu install seems to require a net
connection since it seems like my install got borked. The "getting
started" docs don't differentiate between 2 nics eth0 and eth1. Is
there a console based tool to setup the network interfaces like in
