Wireless LTSP has been discussed ad nauseum on this list, as far back as 
2003, and as recently as this week.  Again, it's a very bad idea, given 
how wireless networking works.  If you want to try it...then good luck!  
The fact that it's "N" wireless doesn't change things.

Stick with thick-client Linux boxes if you're doing wireless...yes, even 
"N" wireless.

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