Well, I'm afraid no. I didn't find a solution inside K12LTSP.

Probably this is a silly question but, have you enabled SELinux when
you executed the id command?

Yes, and then updated to CentOS 5.11.

I've haven't seen the output of id command on CentOS 6 recently, so I
need to take a look again in order tell you about it. I could have the
information tomorrow, if you are interested.

Yes. I've tried for almost two weeks and didn't find a solution,
sadly. I couldn't install a higher version of CentOS because the thin
clients report unsupported processor at boot time so, I opted to
install Edubuntu 14.04 LTS which, I must say, has been impressively
good detecting the old hardware I am administering. Now, the thin
clients boot fast, memory sticks worked as expected, users can listen
music while they surf the web, and the system has updates until 2019.
