Re: Both diskless (thick) and thin clients out of the box?

Hi there,

thank you Petter for this innovative idea. More flexibility is always a 
pro. The concept sounds good for having a bunch of not-yet-installed 
remote work stations yet running with lessdisks.

Some questions must be asked:
1. could both ltsp and lessdisk still fit on one single install cd?

2. Skolelinux seperates the ltsp network in order to
 - keep traffic out from the backbone
 - keep unsecure (non-encrypted) traffic out
How much "data pollution" can the backbone bear with lessdisks? Is there 
a way to introduce secure protocolls (as with nx)?
