BTW, if you want local apps, then I believe your thin clients must use
the same CPU architecture as your LTSP server. That is, if your LTSP
server's a Power Mac G5, then you'd need PPC thin clients to do local
apps. Likewise, an x86-based server would need x86-based clients. But
again, this is *only* in the case of running apps locally, not for the
"classic" LTSP thin client scenario.
