I wanted to thank everyone for the advice on my problem. It did look like
there were two copies of DCHP running. I don't know how it happened, but I
suspect it was my fault.

I attempted to delete one of them and wound up making it impossible for my
computer to even "see" my network cards. After a frustrating evening, I
decided to bite the bullet and just reinstall the whole thing. Maybe the
lesson to be learned here is to back up?

For those who may be interested in trying it, after I installed Fedora 9
and saw that LTSP was working again, I decided to see if I could use the
DVD for Fedora 10 and upgrade. It worked! I had to make one change in
Fedora 10. I had to find the lts.conf file and comment out the line that
read: SCREEN_01=ldm. Once this was gone, the clients booted perfectly

I am still very interested in using WebWork, but it is a time-consuming
install. Has anyone had any luck with it?

Thank you again for all your help. I live in a remote area and I can't
find Linux people except online.
