PreRelease 06 of Sarge-based Debian-edu

Hash: SHA1

A lot of time has passed since last prerelease, and some bug changes
have been done

The biggest change is that we use new ltsp-packages, which is built by
debian packages. Since this is more or less the same tools that is used
with lessdisks, lessdisks is no longer on the CD. Also, to get more
education apps onto the CD, some of the developer tools are removed.
There is no Image for the PowerPC this time, I hope to get back with
more info in that department later on.
