Ken and I are running the project. We keep in more or less constant contact.

I am setting up a Linux lab at Roosevelt High School in
east los angeles. Its among the top 10 largest high schools in the
United States.

Have you spoken with either Kenneth Wyrick or Ricardo Mireles?  They are both big in FOSS in LA.  If you would like, I will ask Kenneth to contact you.  I have lost Ricardo's contact info, unfortunately. 
 So I am very interested in what SFLUG has done and collaboration on
deploying Linux based labs utilizing Edubuntu. 

We purchased a thin client server with the help of... get ready for this... Microsoft!!  It's true!  Microsoft bought our school an edubuntu thin client server from a company called 
Zareason.com <http://Zareason.com>  !!  I blogged about the experience, and the blog was Slashdotted.  This should help you *get* the box.  

I am actually a relatively simple end user, but it was still quite simple, with the help of several members of this list, to get the box installed and set up a decent thin client lab!!

I am glad to share with you what little I know about our work.  I mostly did non-technical stuff. 
Good luck!  Please let me know what apps you are going to be using, and how you are integrating your lab into the school curriculum.  As always, the biggest challenges in doing this kind of work is not the technical stuff (although that work is, indeed, difficult!), but the work of getting curriculum to get the staff and students interested in actually using the infrastructure!
