It's working!!!

It's a sight of beauty...

So here's what happened.  I noticed that the error I posted about just
now was talking about trying to mount a filesystem but it wasn't
working.  I also noticed it wasn't using the i386-3 directory when it
should be.

So I looked more closely at the DHCPD.conf file and found a mistake!

The line was in the second scope:
option root-path "";

but it should have been:
option root-path "";

I got this idea from reading through the email archives related to the
error's keywords and I found a posting by Jim McQuillan (Mr. Ltsp

) Copy your lts.conf file from /opt/ltsp/i386/etc to /opt/ltsp-4.2/i386
 2) Add  "/opt/ltsp-4.2/i386" to your /etc/exports file
 3) run  'exportfs -ra' to update the nfs daemon
 4) Modify your dhcpd.conf file as follows:
   a) Change the 'filename' parameter to point to the new kernel,
      it should be '/lts/' for PXE booting
      and '/lts/vmlinuz-' for Etherboot booting
   b) Change the root-path entry to point to '/opt/ltsp-4.2/i386'
 5) Restart dhcpd

I realized it was an analogous situation so I did that exportfs -ra
command, then hunted around in dhcpd for that root path and found it
was wrong.

Changed, restarted and they both boot!!!!!

I must thank you all so very much. I would have given up a long time
ago without everyone's help.

Thank you
