Re: [K12OSN] Running K12LTSP on existing windows network without modifying windows server

If you are only doing it in 1 of the labs...this is what I'd do on the *sneaky sneaky* if possible
Build out your K12LTSP server as you'd like it...dhcp is over eth0...which is where the clients will connect...
now... take the uplink cable to the switch in the lab... and plug it into eth1 on the server...
then plug another cable from eth0 on the server into the switch in the lab...
then boot via pxe on the client machines =)
then...if you want them to use their windows ickyness...just unplug wires...and replug how there were =)

I'm very excited about setting up a K12LTSP system on one of our labs (archaic p150 machines running w95 VERY SLOWLY) in our school. Currently we have an extensively wired school with one W2K server as part of a boardwide WAN. I would like to set up a K12LTSP server on the same network backbone but am concerned about conflicting DHCP servers. I do not have access rights or permissions to modify the W2K server.

How can I basically attach the K12LTSP server to our network and have the clients boot to it through the existing network infrastructure without interfering with the W2K server?

Can I modify the LTSP server to handle DHCP through a different port so that it doesn't conflict with the W2K DHCP server?

I'm a LINUX newbie and detailed advice would be much appreciated.
