And a mighty 'thanks' to all who ever worked on this. I started running 
LTSP about 14 years ago. I have enough old hardware for clients  that I 
still run it at home. It's not a mighty media portal, but for basic 
web/docs/email it still works very well.

cat /etc/issue
CentOS release 5.7 (Final)

There's still updates for CentOS, even that old. I still have cronjobs 
that rsync everything important to a spare drive for backup. A few years 
ago I had a motherboard failure, plopped the drives into another server. 
After a bit of extra thinking and finding new hardware, it came right
