Try running that command on the thin client itself.  You'll need in lts.conf:

SCREEN_02 = shell

This will let you hit ctrl-alt-f2 on the thin client and get a shell.  You'll need to put the sihp1000.dl file in /opt/ltsp/i386/usr/share/foo2zjs/firmware on the server, so it will be available to the thin client.  (That directory will need to be created).  Then run that command and see if it works.

This printer seems to be different than the HP 1020 which worked for me...
