Hmm...interesting...I remember a similar discussion in a previous
thread about this. My buddy, whom I set up with K12LTSP a little while
back, has a Pentium-120 that he finally let me turn into a thin client
for his son. It was indeed awful trying to run TuxType or
TuxMath...until I dropped a 10/100 card and an ATI Radeon 7500 into
it. Now it's great.|
Could that be the issue--the video chipset?
Do you GNU!?

Thanks, Robert. I have a couple here in the shop. They are quite usable as thin clients. Since they are rather slow, they won't push the resources of the server too much. In prior tests with much faster hardware, apps like tuxmath would bog down the server. But a 200 MHz CPU just can't pit bits to pixels fast enough to bog things down running tuxmath :) I only have 2 of these and I estimate it would take at around 4 to provide the load running tuxmath that a single 700 MHz Pentium thinkpad can pull on the same server. As a general purpose student client they work very well! On Wed, 2007-07-04 at 17:05 -0700, Robert Arkiletian wrote:
