I am hoping to alleviate the network bottlenecks with the four gigabit load balanced
NICs.  Each lab will be fed with a dedicated gigabit connection, some with multiple
connections all leading back to the primary gigibit switch.  So there will be a
dedicated gig to every 30 machines or less.  Do others think this will still bottleneck?

They won't always be concurrently logged in, but it will be possible so I think I need
to plan for that.

I have been playing with gtk-recordmydesktop.  Not quite what I am looking for yet, it
is a little choppy.  I will try out your suggestions.  I definitely want to be able to
record the sessions for future reference and for new teachers.  I also know I need to
keep them short as I loose them fairly quickly :-)

All money paid through tuition.  I just hope I can really save the money and not have to
backtrack or add too many other servers due to speed problems.
