[K12OSN] The new Ubuntu 8.04 server

After downloading the brand new Ubuntu 8.04 server and the Edubuntu 8.04 Addons isos, burning them, and installing them (edubuntu needs to be installed from Synaptic/CD source) and after running "sudo ltsp-build-client" the awesome looking ubuntu thin clients are available to Thin Client clusters (with the exception perhaps of the AMD Geode-based thin clients like the SYM1112 that just hangs...)

Is anybody using a patch or work-around for the SYM112? I had been told that the earlier Gutsy release of Ubuntu included a very broken amd driver, as well as a broken Xserver, that this new version was going to fix.

Can anybody perhaps cross-post with the Ubuntu folks to see if they have solutions?
