The focus of this page is to coordinate the creation/updating of a complete set of basic instructions for setting up a school lab using Edubuntu Lucid with LTSP.

Hints on editing this page

Vertical dividing lines on the table are created by placing "||" on successive lines of text. You must leave at least 1 space before the first word in a cell and you cannot put a space after the last "||" on a row. As you will see when you go about editing this page, the "||" do not have to be lined up one above the other.

Table of "Mandatory" Tasks

The "optional" tasks are on the second table below. There are no links in this table because it makes the table even more difficult to edit. Please see the links for each task in the corresponding line at the bottom of this page. Add your name to a row if you are willing to take some leadership on that how-to.
