Hi Eric,

I use a PXE boot CD for a diskless desktop machine (a.k.a thin client) 
to boot from the server (P-IV w K12ltsp V4.2 beta5)
When the CD boots I select option 2 (XDM) on the client and monitor on 
the server the messages (tail - f /var/log/messages ).
This gives me the above message and the client comes up with a solid 
gray screen. No other error messages !
BTW frrom the server it does show that a DHCP request is recieved & an 
IP address is given.
