[K12OSN] is dhcp on port 1067 necessary?

I haven't tried it, but I did save an email from a few
weeks/months back when you posted something similar. 
The computer in question is normally booted with a
rom-o-matic floppy, but I was using knoppix just to
test my dhcp setup.

Do you know any tricks for booting my laptop which
only has a floppy drive?  The wireless ltsp package
isn't working.  The boot process stops at "doing
pivot_root" and then claims that the nfs server isn't
responding.  At that point, I can ping the laptop, but
I can't do anything else with it.

Thanks for the help.
