Here are some info. These 300 student's notebooks are of course by default
loaded with windoze and the students want to use this as their 'offline' os.
However when connected to the classrooms network I seek creative solutions
on how to do this with linux servers and some kind of linux clients able to
boot and run from these notebooks. Maybe boot client software from usb
memory sticks or CDs?
As mentioned they need print and file storage services, internet access,
applications as OpenOffice etc...
We (I) want as little and smooth administration as possible ;-)
Now it's up to you guys. What options do we have...?
