I'm no expert, just my opinion (shout of I say
anything wrong here please...)
I'm a little way into an LTSP project myself. It's
going very well. I decided early on to get a bunch of
PCI video cards, and perhaps a bunch of networks cards
(to make configuration a dream). The video card is the
crux of it in my opinion. It's very _handy_ to have
the same NIC's but not important to be honest. I

Our oldest machines, which are gateway P75
don't appear to agree with SIS video cards.

FYI, you can pick up a cheap (cheap in both senses of
the word) 14" TFT in PCWorld for about �180 (exc). So
with an old box, and a new graphics card, you can
build a TFT flatscreen workstation for �200. I like
the sound of that.
Considering the way our kids treat screens I'm far
from convinced that TFT monitors are a good idea.
<whisper> but a CRT is of course fine
I've had very positive LTSP experience so far. I think
it's fantastic. And it's _so_ easy to administer the
network (read server) once it's set up.
What size server are you using and how many
clients do you have running?
