[K12OSN] video on LTSP

First, get off of Fedora Core 6; you're asking--begging--for a system 
compromise.  It hasn't been supported for nearly a year now!  I strongly 
recommend K12LTSP 5EL, based on CentOS 5, which looks virtually 
identical to FC6.

After you do that...

...then check out your server port on your switch to see how much 
bandwidth is actually being used when you try to view these videos. 

Also, note that Totem and MPlayer are not the same thing; I've found 
that Totem can have "issues" in LTSP environments that MPlayer doesn't 
seem to have.  No, I don't know why; it's just what I've seen.  And 
MPlayer is at version 1.0; there is no v2.16.5.

Do you GNU <http://www.gnu.org>?
Microsoft Free since 2003 <http://www.cmosnetworks.com>--the ultimate 
antivirus protection!
