Been there and done that. Yes, flash-with-sound worked, PAE worked, but there were other issues with Edubuntu that drove me nuts. Thanks for the tip though.

There's also a 32-bit version of K12LTSP 5EL.

OK that settles the question of whether to go 5.0 EL or not -- if I
have to struggle another nanosecond with getting flash to work with
64-bit I don't want anything to do with it. I'd rather run the risk of
being hacked and cracked, and that's the truth. Although I side with
the philosophical arguments, my teachers demand flash with sound as
their #1 priority, way above Office compatibility for example.

WRT disadvantages of Edubuntu -- the disadvantages for me anyhow were numerous. Getting flash to work with 64-bit operating system proved a futile exercise, and I ran into all kinds of little glitches along the
way. I won't go into details. That said it's got great curb appeal,
and I hope that their spring 2008 version has more promise because it
could be worth another look.

How about just running 32-bit? You can run the HUGEMEM kernel with PAE extensions if you need more than 4GB DRAM (assumes Intel CPU's for PAE,
of course).
