[K12OSN] Morley's Great K12LTSP labs - update

The only thing I hate about the K12LTSP project(s) is the speed in which
they are obsoleted. Just about that time I get around to upgrading, the
version I am comfortable with is already in obsolescence and no longer
supported. I was just getting ready to roll out FC6 K12LTSP and now I
hear it is obsoleted already.

It really makes me not want to mess with it anymore and I am a BIG FAN
of the K12LTSP project(s).

One of my reasons for going to it in the first place was the fact that
you plug it in and it works. But, it seems with every new version, there
are new kinks that you gotta work out or wait until the ones who know
how to fix them get them fixed, but by then, it is obsoloeted already
and it is no longer available. The upgrades aren't upgrades. They are
completely new installs with completely new sets of bugs and kinks. And
I am just a small-time user. . . My server at home that my family uses
is FC3. Still rock-solid and just works. I was going to FC6 as soon as
possible, but . . . I have several servers at work, also, and one is
running FC6 but I havent' touched it in a year. . .

Good news that things are working. 

However, I (and others on this list) really, REALLY recommend swapping
out K12LTSP 6.0 for K12LTSP 5.0EL.  Fedora Core 6 isn't supported
anymore, and you're just asking to get cracked if you keep using it
