Let me see if I can help you with this at all...

First, this group has a LOT of experience with tech in education, so I think
this is a good place to go for help.  But this is also a group of very
overworked folks, so we don't have tons of time either.

The first thing I would recommend you do is download and install the Live
USB install, and make sure the Sugar packages with it.  Once we know that
they work (install and run without crashing things), the next thing to do is
ask folks on this list for feedback and suggestions.
