[K12OSN] LTSP 4.4.1 client booting fails

I don't understand (very much) about pxe-booting, but for some reason I 
have had
this same problem with two 4.4.1 servers (home and work): after installing
webmin and after manipulating users with it, pxe-booting fails.

(I noticed the problem with my home server just a few days a go, because I
mainly use pcmcia-clients at home, which are booting with 
wireless_ltsp, so not
getting kernel from the server.

Don't know what or why, only the symptoms. And that I have to study my Linux.
Until now I have been able to use K12LTSP without really knowing anything.)
