Re: [K12OSN] Getting eMacs to boot.

My guess is that X is failing to start.  You might need a custom XF86Config.  The
easiest way to do this is to boot from a PPC Live CD (Such as Ubuntu PPC) that correctly
detects your video card.  Then steel the /etc/X11/XF86Config file and move it to your
servers /opt/ltsp/ppc/etc folder and name the file XF86Config.emac.  Open the
XF86Config.emac file and if you see any references to change that to the IP
address of your server. Then in the /opt/ltsp/ppc/etc/lts.conf file add the following lines:

         XSERVER            = r128
         XF86CONFIG_FILE    = XF86Config.emac

Be sure to substitute MA:CA:DD:RE:SS:XX with the actual Mac Address of the the emac you
are trying to boot.  After that, boot your emac again with the "N" key and it should
work.  Let us know what happens.
