Going thin...

Had not set up an ltsp server in a long long time. Just to keep my fingers in it, I took an 800 mhz amd single core system to use as the server. I think it had Jaunty on it. Upgraded to lucid. The system already had two nics in it so it made things easier.

sudo apt-get install ltsp-server-standalone.
make sure to set the nic to autostart or a bunch of services will not start.
set the ltsp network nic as static.
Altered the dhcp configuration files for the nic and network.
sudo ltsp-build-client
sudo ltsp-update-image
apt-get install lxde
reboot server

Start thin clients.

Worked a lot better than I imagined. Sound worked out of the box on the thin clients. (after loading some codecs)

Did not try flash (or install what was needed) as I had other things to do.

The only bad thing about it is the old thin clients I have will not work with it. Need a bit more horse power. I will be looking for bargains on replacements.
