Can anyone who has got his going help me out? I don't have
$LTSP_HOSTNAME in my shell environment.  I have HOSTNAME which is my
server.  Is $LTSP_HOSTNAME supposed to be my clients hostname ie.
ws243?  BTW, if I can get this going, I think this might be the answer
to our prayers because we mainly chubby clients.
