I think Peter has by far,the best logic on this!. For a few dollars in
cat5e and one or two switches, these would be a prime fit for a k12ltsp
lab. Tell your superiors?:) that the  dollars spent on the box of wire
and switches will save them $$ by you not having to spend a couple/three
days cloning the hd's then still having marginal workstations. I know
this all is easier said than done. You can simply install eb_2_hd on the
existing hd's  and you'd have a nice setup if you get even a decent
server to serve the TC's. If you haven't ever used eb_2_hd, it is a very
simple 2 step process to erase your hd,and install etherboot image to hd
for each nic in the given machine. Installs from a floppy disk (which
these machines already have).Takes about 5 mins to do each machine.
