I vonder about this because the CD contains ~10 languages or so, and 
then the user can net install > 50 languages[1]. The ubuntu-people just 
net-install of our local language when you install the distribution 
from a CD.

The rest of the suggestions are past inn (with the moderat version of 
"incredibly low" :-). 

Debian-Edu/Skolelinux 2.0 ready for free use!

After twenty-one months of development, Skolelinux has released a new
version. Skolelinux, the Debian-edu project's Custom Debian
Distribution, is installed in hundreds of schools in Norway, Germany,
and other countries. Many municipalities use Skolelinux across all of
their schools; such centralised operation offers low maintenance and
operational costs.  Skolelinux is free and open source software, and
for those schools that need assistance, an increasing number of
commercial organisations offer maintenance and support solutions.

The new version of Skolelinux offers updated versions of popular
programs such as OpenOffice.org, Mozilla Firefox, and GCompris-- all
in many languages. Thin client support is improved, and configuration
of half-thick clients has been made very simple. Half-thick clients
allow for full use of newer hardware, offering support for CD/DVD-ROM,
USB-pen, and audio devices. Since all software is distributed from the
Skolelinux servers, maintenance costs on half-thick clients are still
