[K12OSN] dhcpd and tftp

The hub in question is a linksys from about 1998. 
It's mounted in an out-of-the-way location so I can't
see a model #, but it's got an "uplink" port if that
means anything to you.  It worked in the past, but
since then I've added a router and changed my subnet.

The system I'm working on right now is not a K12LTSP
system.  It's my home system running Mandrake w/ ltsp
on top.  It's all I have available to practice on
before I approach our local school about running

I got my system working with ltsp a few minutes ago,
but it still needs tweaking.  Right now I need to get
the display manager to offer a point-and-click list of
users at the login screen to make things easy on the
others at home who use this computer.

I've gotta use the terminal for a while and see if
anything's broken...

Thanks for the help.
