The Doc from James McQuillan?
Page 11
2.3 Configuring the services needed by LTSP
ltspcfg is mentioned there no...?

Also from that doc (page 30)
Is tftp running?
netstat -anp | grep ":69"
Should return 1 line : udp ....
Check /etc/inetd.conf
tftp dgram udp wait ...
This line is NOT commented out?
make sure the service tftp section is enabled
(disable=no) not yes

 From the logs you send it is either this or NFS
Is the /opt/ltsp/i386 directory listed in /etc/exports?
If not chances are you didn't run ltspcfg properly
See pages 31 and up in the above mentioned doc.

If TFTP is running we will troubleshoot NFS, let me know

>No . . . funny no mention of that in the basic documentation . . .So I just ran it and it didn't seem to make a difference. I'll restart to make sure all services restart properly with any new config.
