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.
