Hi.  Very glad to see your test report.  I'm collecting the lot in one
email to address your questions together, as some of them are related.

Which installation choices did you select?

This was strange, and did not happen when I tested this.

What was the exact message from kdm?  Was this on the main-server
after you booted after running the subnet-change script?

Yes, or add them as printer objects.  Either way should work fine.

This seem like a bug, the same you discovered here:

It should list http://webcache:3128 as the proxy, and the setting is
done by debian-edu-pxeinstall.  This do not happen when I test it, but
I have seen it some times.  Can you tell us more about how you
installed the main-server in question?  What was the network
environment during installation and first boot?

What is the output from 
"grep error: /var/log/installer/debian-edu-install-testsuite" on the
machine in question?

Happy hacking
