Hello World!

I am having a weird problem. I have two servers running our HS and K8
schools. One was running K12ltsp5 and the other k12ltsp6. everything was
running fine last school year. this year has started and i have noticed
these issues. randomly some thin clients will boot off the network, but
as soon as it starts the X session, all I get is a grey background with
an cursor. I notice that when this happens, the network traffic on the
thin client is blinking constantly. I will reboot the thin client and
sometimes it will com up normally, sometimes it may take 4 or 5 reboots.
then once a user logs in and then back out, alot of the time the screen
scrambles and the thin clients lock up. i reloaded that server with
edubuntu, the problem seems to have gone away. However, now i noticed
the k12ltsp6 server is doing the same thing. both of these servers were
there own seperate network with the second nic connected to the main
network. Does anyone have any ideas? which log files should i look at. i
do notice i get alot of errors "ws217.ltsp ypbind[1029]: broadcast: RPC:
Timed out."
