Glad you're having success with K12LTSP. Note: if you're running
K12LTSP 6.0, I think everyone on this list would recommend that you move
to 5.0EL as soon as you possibly can. The reason is that Fedora Core 6
(the basis of version 6.0) is no longer supported with security updates
since December 2007. Version 5.0EL, on the other hand, will get
security updates until 2014.
Now, to answer your question, we'll need to know what OS these
"traditional computers" are running, e. g. a GNU/Linux distro, FreeBSD,
Mac OS, etc.
Do you GNU <http://www.gnu.org>?
Microsoft Free since 2003 <http://www.cmosnetworks.com>--the ultimate
