Yes, it is. Changing the value kde to lxde is done, but after running debian-edu-pxeinstall there is
kde in the file again. So I made the change once again without running the script. What am I doing
Next step is to boot the notebook using the networkbootption. In the bootscreen I only see kde to
install, :-( but I give it a try. Finishing the installation and booting from hd there is a great
surprise: the notebook is installed with LXDE as the desktopenvironment.

I'm not very familiar with these commands. I have done it, but I can't see any effect.

This file (/etc/debian-edu/www/debian-edu-install.dat.local) doesn't exist. Do I have to create it?
