birch is the name of the server that is driving the ltsp lap.
It is an IBM eServer with dual PIII 1.3 GHz processors. It currently has 1.2 Gig of ram, which we are looking to upgrade to 2 Gig when we come across a couple 512M chips.
The operating system is Debian Etch, and it is running LTSP 4.2. It should probably be upgraded to LTSP 5, and maybe be running Ubuntu Server to provide an environment more similar to our grant boxes/freek boxes.
