I need book learning for Ubuntu LTSP

I have searched the web, the AskMe mind, and asked a couple of local LTSP experts about a good, printed resource that will take me step by step through setting up an Ubuntu server and eight to ten clients. I know where to find most if not all the install info online, which is where most experts have pointed me, but my mind works better if can can see it in a book. Suggestions? [more inside]

Build it, and they will come. But maybe it's already built?

Is there a search engine for finding open source "clones" of various web services and software? For instance, I know there are open source projects (like Diaspora) that aim to mimic Facebook, and other open source projects that mimic Twitter... But how do I find out if there's an open source project that is trying to mimic the Meebo/Wibiya toolbar? Or some open source project that's trying to create a Groupon-like website? [more inside]

Link to OS project to "tether" iPhone?

I recall seeing an open-source project for the iPhone which allowed you to share your iPhone's internet connection with a computer, i.e. "tether". It's not as easy as, um, "proper" iPhone tethering. Also, you must a paid-up iPhone Developer to compile and install it to your phone. But otherwise, yay. But I can't find it anymore. Believe me, I have googled. Ring a bell for anyone?
