RE: [K12OSN] Logon stuck

Hi... stupid me.. I thot NFS was running.. and it wasn't... started it..
and voila... now I see "something"... like 5 logon screens... mashed
together... trying to play with the monitor sync rates as well as making
sure the video card is seated right.... 

Then play with ltp.conf some more to get mouse working... what was
interesting was I HAD the video working on my other monitor... (mine not
the kids)... but no mouse... will have to see about the sync....

Shauna... oh the fun of learning :)

We had this exact problem with our lab when we were first setting it up.
ended up being that our server and client were running with different 
duplexes.  The server was at full duplex and the client was at half
You can force the duplex with mii-tool.  Give it a try and see what
