If you don't have any EtherBoot clients, then Edubuntu is a fine
choice. If you have a mixture of both EtherBoot and PXE clients,
though, go with K12LTSP, as Edubuntu doesn't support EtherBooting
clients out of the box. You can make it do so, but you have to hack
/etc/dhcpd.conf. But for that, I might be running Edubuntu myself.|
If you do go with K12LTSP, I'd suggest the "Enterprise Linux", or "EL" version (the CentOS-based one). It's quite good, I find. I'm using it now to type this. Remember that you have both yum and apt/synaptic with K12LTSP, too.
Do you GNU!?

SIS7019 is sound modle you compile. I'll get a how to posted in the next couple days. Ill see if I can do a how to as well for compiling yourself,,if you like the challenge.. What version of K12LTSP are you using at present?This will be for a completely new setup. I am stuck between Edubuntu Feisty and K12LTSP6. I have been testing both. I really like the ease of upgrade Edubuntu offers and the large debian repository, but K12LTSP still seems faster and packaged better....decisions, decisions. If you could email me module and your lts.conf lines that would be great. I hope to make a purchase within the next couple months. Looking at a new LDAP server with 2 LTSP servers to start and a separate file server with an attached PowerVault. Then depending on performance I might hand some application specific servers off the whole thing. I want to start with about 100 clients and ramp up to about 200 within the next year. So I need to plan this out right from the beginning and be sure I have a plan in place that can grow. This will be the biggest rollout I have ever thought of attempting with LTSP.
