Hi Kathi

An alternative is for you to use the GLI applet. Greenstone can be set
up on the server, and the students access it using an applet.
Please see
http://www.cs.waikato.ac.nz/~mdewsnip/greenstone/west-yorkshire/remote-greenstone.html
for instructions on how to set this up. (this page is linked to from our
wiki page
http://greenstone.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/Installing_Greenstone
)

Regards,
Katherine
