K12LTSP based on CentOS 5 (EL5)?

IIRC, that is the very old LTSPv4 which did not have remote USB storage 
support.  LTSPv5 supports ltspfs for remote USB storage.

Years ago I made this incomplete and experimental LTSPv5 for EL5. ltspfs 
remote USB wouldn't work because it lacks fuse kernel modules. In any 
case EL5-based LTSPv5 was not supportable because of several missing 
pieces in the base distribution.

Please follow the development of K12Linux EL6 which aims to make LTSPv5 
fully supported on EL6 (CentOS6 isn't released yet).  K12Linux EL6 will 
be a LTSP distribution with updates through the year 2017.

In a few days I will be releasing the first private beta of K12Linux EL6 
to the 14 project sponsors.  Currently ltspfs is broken on K12Linux EL6. 
  I am attempting to fix it before the private beta.

Please join this mailing list.  A great many K12LTSP and K12Linux users 
are on this list.
