Yeah, except I already have dhcp-ltsp-config installed and...

...I already have this set in the config file.  As I said, it was working, but when I 
tried it the other day, after a week or so of not using the beta server, the clients 
couldn't get a kernel anymore.  But I'm going to re-install anyway, so my situation 
isn't worth worrying about.  I just mentioned it since others were reporting dhcp problems.

I hope to install the latest beta (6?) this weekend.  I'll let the list know if it 
doesn't fix the problem with my iPaq.
