Son of Re: [K12OSN] x86 thin client apparently ignoring DHCPOFFER from LTSP



All of this message did not get to you last time, so I will try again.

I have a 1GHz Micron server running LTSP V3.0 connected by a crossover cable to a 233 MHz Gateway client. I booted the Gateway with a ROM floppy and it successfully boots and runs as a thin client. This is really cool. The relevant parts of /var/log/messages for this are

Jan 22 21:37:14 Bootle dhcpd: DHCPDISCOVER from 00:a0:cc:64:8b:dd via eth0
Jan 22 21:37:15 Bootle dhcpd: DHCPOFFER on 192.168.0.253 to 00:a0:cc:64:8b:dd via eth0
Jan 22 21:37:15 Bootle dhcpd: DHCPREQUEST for 192.168.0.253 (192.168.0.254) from 00:a0:cc:64:8b:dd via eth0
Jan 22 21:37:15 Bootle dhcpd: DHCPACK on 192.168.0.253 to 00:a0:cc:64:8b:dd via eth0
Jan 22 21:37:20 Bootle dhcpd: DHCPDISCOVER from 00:a0:cc:64:8b:dd via eth0
Jan 22 21:37:20 Bootle dhcpd: DHCPOFFER on 192.168.0.253 to 00:a0:cc:64:8b:dd via eth0
Jan 22 21:37:22 Bootle dhcpd: DHCPREQUEST for 192.168.0.253 (192.168.0.254) from 00:a0:cc:64:8b:dd via eth0
Jan 22 21:37:22 Bootle dhcpd: DHCPACK on 192.168.0.253 to 00:a0:cc:64:8b:dd via eth0


I then rebooted the Micron and attached a VAIO notebook with the crossover cable. The VAIO shows the following (as best I could copy it) while it tries to boot from its floppy:

.000021.0000 done
ROM segment 0x0800 length 0x4000 reloc 0x9400
A20 enabled via bios
Etherboot 5.0.8 (GPL) Tagged ELF for [EEPRO100]
Boot from (N)etwork or from (L)ocal? N

Ethernet addr: 08:00:46:13:88:29
Searching for server (DHCP)..


Then it freezes and goes no further. The relevant part of /var/log/messages for the VAIO are

Jan 22 21:49:13 Bootle dhcpd: DHCPDISCOVER from 08:00:46:13:88:29 via eth0
Jan 22 21:49:14 Bootle dhcpd: DHCPOFFER on 192.168.0.252 to 08:00:46:13:88:29 via eth0


Any ideas what is going wrong here? Thanks for the help.
