Could you please share exactly what you did to make teachertool work 
with LTSP5 on Fedora 9?  I want to integrate all of this as RPM packages 
but my time is extremely limited.  We need more people who have already 
done the work to document what they did and perhaps even work on RPM 
packages for Fedora inclusion.

I believe you have some misguided idea in your mind about what K12Linux 
is.  These things will not just magically happen.  I need the 
contributions of users in order to make more pieces work out-of-the-box
