Is this okay running a thin client on the live DVD?
(I realize in the long run there isn't a problem)
Jigish Gohil previously emailed me this information about the 5 thin
clients, which I'm trying to grasp.
"Those users are only in live sessions, for security reasons we cannot have

User accounts "linux1 - linux5" with password "linux" are
the Live DVD/USB so you can test LTSP without creating users. These
users are removed once the system is installed, you need to create new
users on the server to log in LTSP clients.
I don't understand the full value of using a live
DVD as a PXE server.

LTSP is not meant to run from Live DVD, running it from live is just

I'll be updating the iso image next week you can do install using that.
