[K12OSN] Adding k12linux EL to existing centos install

I don't think K12Linux (which is LTSP 5 on top of Fedora 10 or 11 at this point) 
will run on Centos currently.  Centos 5 is a respin of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 
(RHEL) 5; I know Warren and some other RH folks were working on it at one point, 
but I think they concluded there were too many missing pieces, although I forget 
the particulars.  RHEL is anticipated to arrive sometime in the first half of 
2010, with Centos 6 presumably following shortly after, although RH has not made 
  any announcements to such a schedule.  These are likely to have proper support 
for LTSP 5.

So, today your choices are either run K12LTSP-EL which is LTSP 4.2 on Centos 5, 
or K12Linux which is LTSP 5 on Fedora 10 (or there's a beta on Fedora 11).  The 
former is solid, if a bit weak in client sound, and works well with lower end 
client hardware.  The latter is better if you have newer client hardware, e.g., 
sound just works, newer video chipsets just work, etc.
