DRBL (Diskless Remote Boot in Linux) is a NFS-/NIS server providing a diskless or systemless environment for client machines.
The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a network management protocol used on UDP/IP networks whereby a DHCP server dynamically assigns an IP address and other network configuration parameters to each device on a network so they can communicate with other IP networks.
Edubuntu, previously known as Ubuntu Education Edition, is an official derivative of the Ubuntu operating system designed for use in classrooms inside schools, homes and communities.
Filesystem in Userspace (FUSE) is a software interface for Unix-like computer operating systems that lets non-privileged users create their own file systems without editing kernel code.

The kernel is a computer program that is the core of a computer's operating system, with complete control over everything in the system.
Linux is a family of free and open-source software operating systems built around the Linux kernel.
Linux Terminal Server Project (LTSP) is a free and open source terminal server for Linux that allows many people to simultaneously use the same computer.
Mounting is a process by which the operating system makes files and directories on a storage device (such as hard drive, CD-ROM, or network share) available for user to access via the computer's file system.
A multiseat, multi-station or multiterminal configuration is a single computer which supports multiple independent local users at the same time.
On some operating systems, a network block device is a device node whose content is provided by a remote machine.
Network booting, shortened netboot, is the process of booting a computer from a network rather than a local drive.
Network File System (NFS) is a distributed file system protocol originally developed by Sun Microsystems in 1984, allowing a user on a client computer to access files over a computer network much like local storage is accessed.
NX technology, developed by NoMachine, and commonly known as 'NX' is a proprietary computer program that provides desktop and remote access.
In computing, the Preboot eXecution Environment (PXE, sometimes pronounced as pixie) specification describes a standardized client-server environment that boots a software assembly, retrieved from a network, on PXE-enabled clients.
RULE (Run Up-to-Date Linux Everywhere) is a project that aims to use up-to-date Linux software on old PCs (5 years old or more), by recompiling and changing some code to recent programs in order to make them use less resources so they can run conveniently.
