Do a 'showmount -e' on the server to make sure it really
is exporting the /opt/ltsp/i386 directory.  If you have
another linux box on the network, try  'showmount -e your_server'
from there or try to mount it somewhere as a test.  I keep
a dual-boot laptop around to test things like that.
You might need to do an 'exportfs -a' or stop and start the
nfs service if you have changed /etc/exports.  You
don't need do anything special with home directories until
you do something more exotic like putting them on a different
server than the k12ltsp server(s).
