The IGEL IZ2 test system I ordered has just arrived, but it seems to lack the
"custom partition" feature making the terminal useless for us since I cannot
install the ThinLinc client. :-(

Before I contact IGEL support: May I ask what OS version you are running on the
IZ series terminal(s) in your lab? Can it be that it's actually an UD variant or
that you have upgraded the feature set somehow to enable the "custom partition"
