Oscar, I'm going to forward this to the K12OSN group so we can all see how
to troubleshoot something like this.

1. The client get's an ip address.

2. It does not get a kernel

3. The /etc/dhcpd.conf file is the default K12LTSP file.

4. The ip address of the server is

5. The line in dhcpd.conf is:

option root-path              "";

6. The files needed in /opt/ltsp/i386 really are there.

7. /tftpboot/lts/pxe/pxelinux.cfg exists and is default.

NFS is running "service nfs status"

8. /etc/exports file is default/opt/ltsp/i386  ,no_root_squash,sync)

So if all this is true, why won't the client boot? What did we miss?

;-) Paul
