[K12OSN] Client won't boot, but getting close

My experience with this sort of thing is that you have a Windows DHCP 
server which paradoxically requires you to add a link in your 
filesystem. It serves up the incorrect path for your filesystem. It 
hands out /opt/ltsp/i3860000 instead of /opt/ltsp/i386. All you need to 
do is add a symbolic link. I can't remember off-hand if you need to 
check NFS exports - try it and see.

Watch your client boot messages - it tells you the correct name.

Smile and nod, though- it's a Win DHCP issue.

I have a single NIC setup going. I have the client requesting an IP
addy from a DHCP server, the DHCP server is talking with the K12 server,
but the client says that it failed to mount the root filesystem from <ip
addy>:/opt/ltsp/i386: Permission Denied.

ANyone know what that means?
