It's been a few years, so I don't remember the exact details, but there 
was something stopping ltsp5(muekow) from working in CentOS 5.  Did that 
blockage get rectified with RHEL 6?

I'm currently on a very outdated fedora/ltsp5 version and would love to 
be able to upgrade the school to ltsp5/CentOS6 ASAP.  I'm only able to 
do these types of upgrades during the summer, or possible during the 
Christmas break.

I'd be happy to help with any testing to move this along.
