RE: [K12OSN] interoperability question

On you other question regarding home directories it is possible. I have the same setup, 2003 AD and home directories through AD and I use pam_mount to mount there home directories as well as any network folders they may need. I'm going to assuming your 90% of the way there if you are already authenticating against your AD you will need to add only a few lines to get it going. Search for pam_mount and AD home directories and if you cannot find the info you are looking for I will try to find the how to I used and send it to you.

You should go for K12LTSP 5EL, based on the new CentOS 5.  Fedora 6 is
no longer supported, as of December 2007.

    A reminder to users: Fedora Core 6 will reach its end of life for
    updates on
    Friday, December 7, 2007.

    Fedora 7 will remain supported until one month past the release of
    Fedora 9
    (as things stand, this would be roughly through the end of May, 2008).
