An addendum to my own posting: now that I'm catching more of the boot messages with nbd swap off I see it's failing even earlier with starting udev at line 30 of rc.sysinit: gives error message "/sbin/udev: no such file or directory"
Looks like I've hosed the root file system on the client. I tried running the ltsp-initialize script and restarting the server but no joy.
