[K12OSN] Very frustrating!

There's nothing wrong with those "old" thin clients.  I use LTSP 4.x as 
well with K12LTSP 5.0EL., and it works great for me.  And yep, one of my 
clients is a Pentium-MMX 166 with an S3 Trio64+ video card.

As for that printer, sure, I can believe it stopped working.  This "hang 
the printer off the thin client" bit is a hack.  Seriously, just pick up 
a cheapie print server for that printer, have the K12LTSP server itself 
talk to it (via the network), and be done with it.  You're spending way 
too much time on this.

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