Works for me!

I WAS thinking about doing thin clients across wireless, but I see from what you say and what I have read tonight, that it is not
such a smart move.
I got K12LTSP 5EL running on a server now, but have a problem with a Dell C600. It boots pxe fine, but it never makes it into
X-windows. It just sits at the grey screen with an X for the cursor. The cursor does move with the mouse. Did I miss some settings
in the server setup?
