For existing K12LTSP users, and there are plenty, we ought to keep some
reference to LTSP, even if it's "K12Linux Terminal Server Edition".

BTW, your choice of version naming is nice (F9, F10, EL6, etc.). Clear and to
the point.

I was thinking FC10 - K12Linux Terminal Server and EL6 - K12Linux Terminal Server. We should make sure the installer will let you deselect the EDU or LTSP option. Lots of people like to install just the LTSP or just the EDU part. For example, you might install K12Linux on a student's stand alone PC and skip the terminal services part. This also allows those that don't use the EDU apps to avoid installing all the EDU apps and games. It should almost just be an install option in Fedora or EL that requires an additional CD or installation of a yum metapackage(s). The advantage of the respin is that you avoid having to put those options in the standard fedora or RHEL installer as another profile or choice a non-K12LTSP user has to look at.

Except this is a Live install, not a traditional Anaconda install. There is NO WAY to select or deselect things to install. A Live install copies everything from the media onto the disk, a bit-for-bit filesystem copy.
