Re: Who's working on centralized management?

	Yes, this was one of the ideas in my own lab. However, since the
clients have 6Gb+ of disk I thought it was quite a waste of space to let
them install there only NT and reserver a "small" partition to Linux.
	When the clients might run Netscape/Gimp/Gnome/Wmaker, I think it's
necessary to have all binaries local (however a server's /usr is mounted
/usr/local). Also, I did not want to break Debian by not letting it touch
	I think, however, that such a modified boot-floppy as well as more
documentation on how this is down could make a useful debian package :)
