Hmm...if you need to show the Powers That Be (PTB), then you might 
consider K12LTSP 5EL for your first real deployment.  It doesn't get 
more reliable and rock-solid than that, and you're supported until the 
year 2014.  Decision makers like that.  Then, once the PTB say "OK, 
maybe this 'Linux thing' isn't so bad after all", *then* introduce the 
Fedora-based K12Linux.

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