RE: [K12OSN] School printer server



Title: Re: [K12OSN] School printer server
Thanks for all your help.  Just to let you know I've found
http://freesco.org/ that I'm setting up for the print server. 
And, as slashdotfx suggests I'll read a book for the file
server/unattended install part.  I'll also look into wpkg as Huck
suggests.

and maybe take a look a "wpkg" for unattended installs?
