FYI, I'm using K12LTSP 5EL, which is based on CentOS and LTSP 4.2.  It
has Firefox 3 and OpenOffice 2.3.  I'm also authenticating off of Active

I have previously setup a couple on FC6 and LTSP 4.2 and they are workable, but trying to upgrade OpenOffice.org and Firefox has been problematic.  I would like to build new servers on FC9 and LTSP 5.  The hitch is configuring Active Directory integration to allow students and staff to login using existing AD accounts and accessing the existing home directories.  It works well on the FC6 servers, but I am having no luck on FC9.  I heard there are problems with the version of Samba that comes with FC9 connecting to Win2003 AD.
