Given that these are PII boxes, I would suggest Xubuntu (XFCE-based) 
instead of Ubuntu (GNOME-based) or Kubuntu (KDE-based). If all these 
machines will be in the same room, they should also look into the 
possibility of using LTSP which is a breeze to install and configure 
under Ubuntu  7.04 and its variants. The PII boxes in the LTSP example 
will boot off the network  and will need a 100Mbps switch and a server 
in the back.

I'm busy with end-of-semester duties, so I cannot personally assist.
