[K12OSN] k12ltsp as next-server

dear All,

I'm trying to set up a K12Ltsp server on Centos6.2 as next-server behind 
an OpenSuse11.1 Kiwi-ltsp server.
So everybody on this site boots from the Kiwi-ltsp machine, but I want 
to put some users on the newer CentOs-server.

So in /etc/dhcpd.conf on the Kiwi-ltsp machine it says:

*group {
filename "/ltsp/i386/pxelinux.0";

host testtc {
hardware ethernet 00:22:64:29:a9:4e;

next-server being the K12ltsp machine.
host testtc, the test thinclient, is a Hp thinclient attached to the 
Kiwi-ltsp machine.

The K12ltsp setup on the Centos6.2 machine is completely new installed 
and exactly like it's explained on the site.
So firewall is off.

The thinclient gets an dhcp address and begins booting, then halfway 
down stalls with this EM:

*Dracut: Warning: Boot has failed. To debug this issue add "rdshell" to 
the kernel
command line.
Dracut Warning : Signal caught.

Kernel Panic -not syncing : attempted to kill init!
id:1, comm: init Tainted :6 
6.thinclient s1

*If I want to add "rdshell", where would I put it?

Could this be a simple permission problem --- the Kiwi-Ltsp machine 
boots with the pxelinux.0 from the CentOs machine
if I understand it correctly -.

Or could the 2 systems be incompatible?

Thanks for any advise on this.

greetings, J.
