I strongly agree with the Gigabit on the server.  You don't know if
you're going to be running 14-15 simultaneous sessions of TuxType. Remember that TuxType sucks up 73Mb/sec per session. Gigabit Ethernet
on the server is important for this.  TuxMath is pretty similar.

I think it would be fun (and cheap and quiet) to build a classroom/lab server out of a mac mini or equivalent small form factor box. The 2 gig RAM limit would probably be the limiting factor for how many clients you could handle (it does have a Gig ethernet port) especially if you have a separate file server for the home directories. Has anyone tried it? If the next version has a core2 duo instead of the current core duo processor it would be even better.
