Well, I'll just have to leave it off till we finish the other project then. For some reason the TFTP server my boss is using won't work unless LTSP is off the network. He only needs it to reset the password on the firewall, which for some reason we don't have. I didn't think it should matter since you can more than one LTSP set up.
