Okay.  So I'll simply expand ltsp-ppc.tar.gz to /opt/ltsp/ppc

Then put the following files from apple.tar.gz into /tftpboot
yaboot
yaboot.conf
vmlinux-ppc-2.4.22-ltsp-1
initrd-ppc-2.4.22-ltsp-1

Then replace my existing dhcpd.conf with the following one included in
apple.tar.gz (with all refs to 192.168.0.1 changed to my server IP).

I imagine that if I replaced my ifcfg-eth0 with your file I could leave
dhcpd.conf alone?

Then do I need to do anything with exports and hosts files?

Once done just reboot my mac clients with "cmd+option+o+f", type boot
enet:ser.ver.add.ress at the command and I will be running a true thin
client out of any new world Mac.

Can I remove the HD's from these machines just like I would with a
standard thin?

Will this LTSP server still boot i386 machines when finished or just
macs?

If this is accurate you can pretty much bet what I am doing this
weekend.  Thanks again Chuck.

If I get this to work I will try to create a step by step procedure for
everyone else using new world macs with LTSP.  I will also be building
Netboot OSX Server, and a Netboot Linux test server as well that will
boot OSX disk images so I can see which I like better.
