[K12OSN] Differences between 5.0.0EL and 5.0.1EL

The 5.x-EL version uses LTSP 4.2, which is not the latest--LTSP 5.0 is 
the latest--but I would argue 4.2 is the more mature at this time.  5.0 
is interesting from a "what's in the future" standpoint, as that's where 
the developers are working.  While it holds great promise, from a 
user/student/teacher standpoint, I think 4.2 is, today, the better 
choice: 5.0 is slower to boot than 4.2, tends to require faster client 
hardware, doesn't support fl_teachertool (yet--Robert's working on it), 
etc.  Edubuntu is using LTSP 5.  If you're interested, have a look at it.
