The NIC for the windows dhcp server, and both nics for the k12linux box 
plugged into the same switch.

I understand that by default the k12linux setup is designed to have NIC 
1 pull dhcp and then NIC 2 to be the ltsp server but that requires a 
k12linux for each lab/room where they will be at unless you VLAN each 
port that will be used for ltsp.
