maybe a linux thin-os, to boot iMacs into RDP/Rdesktop app?
Posted on 2004-08-17
We've set up Win2003 terminal server in application/user mode and are trying to recycle some of our old hardware before buying dedicated thin clients.
We have a dozen iMacs that don't have the juice for OSX full, but would serve as fine thin clients if we could get the software sorted out (ie: 64 meg ram, 400mhz proc, etc)
I'd like to make a bootable CD as a test, but eventually, we could format the mac disks with this data.
I'm looking for as slim an install package as possible that would allow for R-Desktop (et al) to be run to make these pretty iMacs into terminals.
So this would be a cross between knoppix and yellow dog.
1) have you ever made a boot disk for powerPC machines?
2) which linux thin client software have you had success with connecting to TS 2003?
