Nope. Why should a different TC behave any differently? The whole point of LTSP
is that everything is downloaded from the server. Of course that means that bugs
are also downloaded, but the problem is almost certainly at the server end.

Surely you're joking! If I reinstalled the operating system every time
something didn't work I'd be doing nothing else but reinstalling
the operating system. I did a fresh install of Fedora9 specifically
so that I could use LTSP5, and everything I've installed has
been done using yum. I have followed the LTSP install instructions
step by step and in fact did have LTSP working two days ago.

The whole idea of these forums is to work the problem. If I did
a textbook install and got this problem, then others will too.
This is how we find bugs in releases and get them fixed.

That has always been there. I have installed LTSP5 twice on a fresh
Fedora9 install and there has always been an empty /etc/lts.conf file.
