What I am looking for is a bootdisk (linux or dos) that will boot a lab full
of PCs and connect them to a windows 2003 termainal server. I have seen the
linux terminal server project but it doesn't support mapping of local zip
drives (or any other removable media). I understand that this might become
a feature, but not any time soon. It is also overkill for what I need. I
have the dosrdp client from http://www.terminal-services.net/, but again it
doesn't support removable media.
I use rdesktop on my linux workstation all the time, it is a great way for
me to administer my windows boxes. Keep up the good work.
