Worked on MTLC LTSP issues. See that BLOG.
Setup WinSrv2003 in Parallels. For some reason, Win does not install a working NIC driver for the Realtek RTL8029. BUT, when you install the Parallels Tools, it puts in a functioning driver.
Ran two instances of VMPlayer today and one just “went away.” Hmm?
Was able to VPN connect server to server on same network (big whoop!) as per the Eckert/Schitka book. Still need to add documenation to last tuesday’s blog. That is still confounding. Will ask prof about it on Tuesday.
Yesterday, Camilo arrived with a student, Grant, to setup a practice Terminal Server using Edubuntu 6.10 and a bunch of old computers as thin-clients. It was a resounding success and clearly this kind of system will and can be employed in the MayaTech’s Guatemala classrooms.
As with any lab experiment, there were some unresolved issues and some follow up tasks that need to be addressed. They are listed here:

On the 5th Camilo wrote saying that he wanted to explore using thin client computing to alleviate the lack of PCs in Guatemala. See our thread of conversations on email that ensued where we investigated installing Edubuntu 6.10. After a few days of playing around, I got it running without being able to log in, but Camilo was able to login and email me last night (the 12th) This could be pretty cool. We’ll see. We’re going to try setting up a lab on the 22nd. Maybe I’ll setup a 2nd drive. Maybe time to get another IDE drive to just have for booting into Edubuntu purposes. Maybe get that layer 3 100/1000Mbps switch working? Hit Ebay?
