First dual-monitor LTSP 5 set-up?

"Given that DisklessWorkstation's 1400 series terminals are based on Via's Eden processor, which is pervasive among thin clients, the company's instructions may also work on thin clients from other vendors. For those in a hurry to try, the documentation can be downloaded here without registration.

"...Once difficult to set up and configure, LTSP has in recent releases moved to a nifty dual-filesystem architecture, with the filesystem for the clients installed separately in /opt. This makes it trivial to chroot in and administer the client environment just like any other Linux system, yet separately from the server filesystem. After the filesystem is updated, a script is run to generate a squashfs filesystem image for use by LTSP clients on the network."
