The terminal kernels are in the ltsp_i386-kernel package. You can verify
that this package is installed with this command:
rpm -q ltsp_i386-kernel
If it is not installed, here is how to do so:
yum install ltsp_i386-kernel
If it is installed, this command will verify it is installed properly
(it only displays errors, no output means it is ok)
rpm -V ltsp_i386-kernel

If you are using a stock K12LTSP installation with two network cards,
eth0 has the IP address 192.168.0.254 to run the terminals and eth1 (or
eth2 in your case) connections to the local area network, then I would
recommend running the configuration script and rebooting:
That does not work, or you are running a non-default network
configuration, here is the LTSP trouble-shooting guide:
