Recycling several PCs and servers at once
My company is writting off some old hardware. I have on my hands a dozen of Compaq PC (PII, 128Mb RAM, 6Gb HDD), and a couple of HP servers (PIII, 256Mb RAM, several raidable hard-disks from 8Gb to 18Gb each).
I got DSL or Xubuntu to run on the Compaq, but I was hoping to set up a little network, using one or more servers, to eventually donate to a school.
I tried Edubuntu, but it won't run on the workstations.
Could I set up the Compaq as some kind of dumb-terminals to access the more capable servers?
Ideally, I'm looking for a French-capable system (I'm in France), with enough things on it to keep little school-kids and their teacher busy.
I'm a Linux newbie (obviously). Any suggestions and links would be most appreciated.
