see above. There were some conflicts or so - and downloading >1GB of 
packages took quite too much time (2.5 hours I'd say). I might get back 
to that machine later in order to send you closer details. I must admit 
however that the original installation was before Sarge being released. 
And it actually used additional sources (for java e.g.).

Today I started wondering if I should replace ALL thin clients 
(neighbour room) by full PCs and switch BOTH rooms to lowfat clients + 
dual boot. I am a bit uncertain about 
- the performance running 2x15 machines from one server
- ongoing usage of Linux if there is most people's home OS available in 
both rooms.
