Well, not sure to understand this (it is beyond my IT skills :)

I would require a GB LAN: not sure about this in the departments where
I give these courses.

What would be the benefit over my current method? If I understand
correctly, I would save the time of copying the `.iso' file on my (old)
USB sticks but the students would waste time to copy from the LAN on
their own USB sticks.
