I have a default installation of F12 with LTSP. I have activated NBD in dhcpd - and then
something goes very wrong.

The ltsp-client doesn't know what address the ltsp-server has, the lts.conf-file from
/var/lib/tftboot/ltsp/i386 isn't copied to /etc/lts.conf on the client and localdevs are
not mountet (even thou they are registerd in /var/log/messages on the client).

I'll have to build the client with the XSERVER-arg in /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/lts.conf for
the client to work. And every detail for specifial client needs to be written in this
lts.conf too. And then I'll have to rebuild the ltsp-client.

If I use NFS to load/mount the LTSP-client everything works. I think there is some
problem that things aren't allowed to mount things with NBD.

There are -no- errors logged in /var/log/messages on the client or on the server with
either NBD or NFS.

I really need NBD - becuase I really would like to get rid of the NFS-traffic from the
