kiwi's version of ltsp-server-initialize

I don't think it works at all, as I don't think it's been updated for LTSP 5 as 
currently implemented it on F8/F9.  The first thing I know of that's broken is 
the networking wrt the clients.  LTSP5 on Fedora uses a bridged network for the 
clients so as to isolate them logically from the rest of the system.  This 
avoids, say, someone inadvertently (and unknowingly) exposing the DHCP server 
onto their main network.  But ltsp-server-initialize, which Eric originally 
wrote for K12LTSP, is hardcoded to use ethX interfaces.  I'm sure it's full of 
other less-abstracted stuff like that, but that's as far as I've gotten, due to 
lack of time.
