- Boot from Alternate CD, at install screen, select F4, then from menu selected install LTSP server, Chose eth1 as the 100 MB NIC. Chose UTC time/Central, chose 'guided, use entire disk' for partitioning. Went through steps and restarted.
- Booted into the new system, update manager, installed and rebooted.
- Tested thin client boot and worked.
- Added extra sources: https://edge.launchpad.net/~sbalneav/+archive/ppa
- Added more sources: https://launchpad.net/~stgraber/+archive/ppa
- Added more sources: https://launchpad.net/~edubuntu-italc-devel/+archive/ppa This last one I didn't yet install (kept boxes in sources 'unchecked'.
- I did update with the "system/update manager" and there were install issues with the "ltsp-server-standalone" it didn't want to update well. Through irc stgraber said: try through the command line interface: sudo apt-get dist-upgrade. and things went perfectly. Really, I think the problem was the ldm.
- I used Synaptic to install sun-java6-jre I think it was called, and then sun-java6-plugin. Looks like I didn't need to install this for CmapTools as CmapTools installs its own runtime environment. However, this was helpful for Flash. Next time go to Ubuntu/LTSP pages at help.ubuntu.com.
