    FAO Ric

    Thanks for showing Dave any myself the thin client setup you have.
    Thanks for the free stuff too, it'll help a lot.

    Couple of things I forgot to ask about at the time though.

    1. How do you deal with Teachers Laptops when everythings thin client?
    2. Is it possible to use Scanners/whiteboards connected to dedicated thin clients rather than converted PCs?

    Finally, I think I've found that etherboot floppy you mentioned. Is this it?

    I'd love to see your setup Ric. No chance of a video I 'spose?

    @ChrisH: You haven't been for a look 'round :P

    As for peripherals, you need a system that has device drivers for the peripheral being used (unless it uses some sort of generic driver - e.g. USB-HID, etc.).

    Something I realised after you guys left, was that I didn't show you a non thin client. The laptops are set up like a normal Win XP box. They use synchronisation and I build them with RIS and use GPOs for software installation. I also install the ICA client so that they have full access to all the software that I couldn't be bothered installing on the laptops.

    I also didn't show you the multimedia performance through citrix - you would be pleasantly surprised.

    I'll bung my thinstation files up when I'm in work tomorrow too. These should help you get up and running a little easier - it's only a couple of lines of editting to use it with terminal services and you won't have to go through the whole rom-o-matic thing or compilation on a linux box.
