Here at DKiT we purchased 4 windows based terminals last year and found
they kept crashing, requiring us to unlock the kiosk to reset the box...
Over a weekend I replaced the hard disk in one and installed gentoo / kde
3.2.1 and firefox. Kde kiosk locked down the desktop, but still allows
select programs to be run from the desktop, A bash script runs firefox
and reloads it if it is exited and (can't find the link now) I hardened
firefox by editing the browser.xul file. It's been up for over 2 months
now with no problems at all.
As soon as I have time I'll clone the drive to the other 3 machines....
