[mrc at server ~]$ uname -a
Linux server.ltsp 2.6.20-1.2320.fc5 #1 SMP Tue Jun 12 18:50:49 EDT 2007 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Some other types of clients boot, however, . . .

With the client specified below I get a kernel panic after
  Running /linuxrc
  Mounting /proc
  ERROR: Could not automatically detect the network card . . .

After changing default to read
  prompt 0
  label linux
   kernel vmlinuz.ltsp
   append root=/dev/ram0 rw initrd=initramfs.gz MOPTS=nolock,ro,wsize=2048,rsize=2048 NIC=tg3

I get the panic at about the same place, after 

  insmod /lib/modules/
  Running dhcpd on port 67

  ERROR! dhcpd failed!

Lenovo ThinkCentre M55e http://review.zdnet.com/desktops/lenovo-thinkcentre-m55e-9632/4507-3118_16-32330429.html?tag=ut

Tried adding NIC=tg3 to default per http://wiki.ltsp.org/twiki/bin/view/Ltsp/KernelOptions

Also tried backporting the ltsp-kernel per http://www.redhat.com/archives/k12osn/2006-September/msg00216.html

Can anyone help?
