I'm a bit remote too, but I admin an xterminal-based system, and am
willing to be on the end of a phone line (sitting in front of a working
xterm) for a designated afternoon if that's any use. Our system is
hand-assembled rather than LTSP, but that just means I've personally
stumbled on most of the bugs.
