Hello All:

I'm an LTSP newbie, I've just finished a fresh CentOS 5el install and I get a tftp time out error on the TC when I try to logon. I searched the archives and prayed to the google god but did not get an answer. Any ideas on what is going on here?

The TC is an older IBM, booting PXE-M0F, which brings up Intel LANDesk v0.99n: It gets through DHCP Mac addr, Client IP, Mask, DHCP IP, Gateway IP, then TFTP . . . then PXE-E32 TFTP Open Timeout.

You might want to make sure your bios on the thin client is up to date. Some of the early PXE implementations were broken. I know I had to flash the Bios on my Dell GX1s to get them to PXE boot. From what you are saying, you are getting an IP address but not getting a boot file from TFTP. Is there anything else on your network giving out IP addresses, like a linksys router? Are you even connecting to a working TFTP server?

Thanks in advance for any help.
