Classroom and Computer Site Changes Planned During Summer 2004

PLEASE NOTE: New Reload Procedures are in place: The software reload procedure for the public site computers has changed. Please follow these instructions when a reload is required:

Near the end of the boot-up procedure, the system displays a message "Hit F12 for Refresh Options". You need to hit F12 within 3 seconds to reload the system software; otherwise it will boot from the local hard drive. If you elect to reload the system software by hitting F12 within the 3 seconds allotted, you will be presented with a "preliminary" Windows blue screen requesting authentication ID and password. You only get one chance to enter your ID and password correctly; otherwise you need to reboot and start over. After you authenticate, you can choose to do a single refresh, or start the multicast client. The reload process will take approximately 10-13 minutes, dependent on the network load.

Rauch Business Center Highlights -- Rooms 50, 60, 70, 171, 184 and 271

100baset network - The new computers in these facilities will be connected to switching Ethernet 100baset hubs which will provide a non-shared 10MB connection per systems. This network will be connected to the gigabit backbone network (1000baset) which will also be under development this summer. All systems will be a Pentium 400 with 17" monitors, 128MB and Zip drives. The systems in the classrooms 171, 184 and 271 will have DVDroms.

New projectors and upgraded AV controls are planned for RBC 50, 70, 171 and 271 classrooms. Perella auditorium, room 184, plans are to update the AV controls and redesign the instructor's podium to accommodate changes faculty have requested. Some items include providing a more functioning space and adding multiple microphone jacks required for panel discussions.

Maginnes and EWFM Computing Center - Rooms 470 and 292, respectively

The computers will be upgraded at both of these computer sites with the systems described above. The Maginnes systems will be DVD-ROM capable.

Other Lecture Room Classroom Upgrades

These lecture classrooms' computer systems will be upgraded and will be DVD-ROM capable (same systems as described above): Chandler 248, Christmas Saucon 201, EWFM 379, Neville 1 & 3, Lewis Labs 270 & 316, Packard 101, 258, 416, & 466, Maginnes 480, Whitaker 203 & 303 and Imbt 101.

June 1999 Note: Due to renovation estimates exceeding available budgets, this site was put on hold while the department evaluates project expectations against available budgets.

Software Changes & Documentation

Windows 98 will be installed.

Logins will be required for all computers on LTS Networks - the public user Lehigh will be eliminated.  Each student will need to open a LAN account in order to use LTS public site computers or access the LAN through the WIRED residential networking project.  The LAN account name (and password) will be the same as the AFS account for each student. Faculty and staff will be able to use their existing LAN account to log into public site PCs.

Logouts will restore the desktop to the default (removes client added icons), clears the personal Netscape configuration data, empties trash, restores the background patterns, etc.

Remote Access to E-mail will be supported by implementing roaming profiles to allow public site access to e-mail through Netscape messenger. Address books, mail preferences, and mail messages will be stored remotely to allow access to e-mail through Netscape's graphical user interface from any public site PC.

The changes and proper usage for computing sites will be available in a document entitled LTS Guide to Public Computing Sites and Classrooms for the Fall semester.
