We have various stripped down i686 and x86_64 PCs in our elementary 
school with the server running on a x86_64 box.
Mostly, it all works quite well, but we have some issues that I could 
use some help with.    I'm hoping these are just FAQ
issues and that someone can point me to an up-to-date version of the FAQ?

- Sound "works," if the classroom is silent and you have very good 
ears!      How do I increase the volume on all clients to a useful level?
   In /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/*/lts.conf we have:
  There was recent discussion, for Ubuntu, at: 
   should I be trying to apply this?

- If I plugin a USB memory stick in the client, I get an icon on the 
desktop, which I can open with nautilus, but none of the content is 
shown?    Where do I  look next?

- Where is the FAQ on how to update the client images properly?      I 
tried using yum in the chroot, but kernel updates didn't work, so now 
I'm  rebuilding the client images from scratch periodically.

- Where is the step-by-step FAQ on configuring and installing local apps?

- Are last-modified-in-2004 FAQs like the one at:  
http://ltsp.mirrors.tds.net/pub/ltsp/docs/ltsp-4.1-en.html still 
accurate?   I assume that the current documentation is supposed to be at 
https://fedorahosted.org/k12linux/, but there seems to be a lot missing 

Thanks for any hints.
