    time to bite the bullet :)

    For my sins I am looking at implementing a Linux Thin Client Solution I know, I know, I am a windows man and Linux is nasty :P

    I have an Edubuntu Server installed and an HP T5725 test client. When I connect both to a switch isolated from the main netwook it PXE boots and the Edubuntu image works and I can log in fine. Open office opens and I was quite impressed. Looks nice so far.

    The problem I have is this, whenh I plug both the server and the client into the main network (which is Win 2003 exclusively) it starts to boot the image, the Edubuntu spalsh screen shows the bar fills a little bit then dumps to a screen with Busy box. Any ideas?

    Also does anyone have a link to a newbie guide on how users can log on using their domain passwords.

    Thanks in advance.

    Have you considered putting your thin clients on their own VLAN?

    no, why will it make any difference?

    I resolved the issue though, seems that you have to update the image everytime you make a change
