I have been successfully running an LTSP server. It's Fedora 9 with LTSP 5.

Last night, I installed a program called WebWork: an open source program 
that allows me to deploy math homework online. At that time, I saw no 

Today, my clients will not boot. The clients "see" the server. IP 
addresses are exchanged, there is a DHCP address and a TFTP address. 
Then the computer starts to display the screen of dots....very, very, 
very slowly. I've been watching my latest attempt for about 10 minutes 
and I'm up to 5 dots.

I have a working LTSP set up on a flash drive. I tried comparing the 
different files. What I checked was the same.

Could someone please help me? My Calculus and Physics students are 
particularly depending on this working and I really don't want to do a 
clean install of the whole operating system.
