    thinclient and touch screen education ideas for <3 y.o.?

    I just ebay'd a thinclient with touchscreen
    I was wondering if any one had any cool uses for the thin client?
    the touch screen I plan to experiment with GCompris and other educational programs I have a 2 y.o. and a 3 week old and my two year old loves Gcompris
    but i have to use the mouse and click for her. I think that touching the screen could get kids nerdy with linux just past 1 y.o. has any one tried
    a touchscreen with childrens educational software? could this thin client
    even run that kind of stuff?

    If the thin client cant run Gcompris what could i do with it that would be neat/usefull?

    ok so i got this and figured out how to get to bios and then to a bash shell (redhat) and reset passwd but when i go to gui a password enter box flashes but now the keyboard dosn't work
    and there is no onscreen keyboard
    the touch screen lets me choose telnet and then it tries to conect to unknown address how can i get a new distro flashed over with out a cdrom?
    or how do i enter the password on gui (touchscreen)
    how can I add keyboard support to red hat with just bash shell?
