RE: [K12OSN] Converting to Linux



I'm assuming that it did too because on a second installation it did. I've been using it fine since then. I should really try to sleep at night instead of working on this project, that may be a large part of my problem.

Hmm...Fedora always has asked me to enter a "root" password during the installation itself.  Do you recall if it asked you for this?

	Thanks everyone for the input. I've decided to get a few versions downloaded and give them all a try. That way I can see what is going to be most compatible. I've started with the Fedora that was on the K12LTSP site. I did a workstation install, and maybe I missed this in the install because I couldn't be near the computer the whole time, but is there a default user or admin? I tried logging on as root but was unable. If there is a contact on that site I need to be looking at then I apologize for bothering the group. Thanks again.

	Levi,
	
	I think that the first thing you should do is look at the types of
	clients you want to convert. Get detailed information about what
	hardware you have now and need to support for the switch. Make a list.
	Chip sets, processors, memory, printers, scanners, etc.
	
	Next look at your software requirements. Does your school system
	require the use of any software? Is it local or web-based? If the
	students need to visit web pages, are they built only for IE?
	
	How many students will your lab support this year? What's your one,
	three and five-year plan?
	
	How resistant are your teachers to switching from Windows? Does it
	terrify them? How supportive is the administration for this switch?
	
	Ask these questions before you ever decide what focus to take for the
	switch. You may save a lot of time that you would otherwise spend
	trying to fit a square peg into a round hole.
	
	Once you have these questions answered, get back to us with the
	details, and there will be a million recommendations for you.
	
	I once put together a thin client network of thirteen machines for
	under US$1000, including the server. Everything was very used, but
	someone recently commented to me that the system used to work very
	well and that it was bulletproof.
	
	Best of luck in your conversion, but remember the old carpenter's
	rule: "Measure twice; cut once." Save yourself a lot of headaches by
	looking at your requirements before you start with any software.
	
	Dan
