Hello all

I have just installed LTSP server on Centos 6.2 machine (Intel i7 - x86_64,
fully updated with CR repo)  with two ethernet cards from
Install script reported OK. Used an old Pentium PIII 550 Mhz machine
as test client with a direct network connection with ltsp ethernet card of
the server and a pxe boot cd. Used --release 11 option to generate the ltsp

Seems that network card got an IP address from the dhcp server and started
the boot process. Then I got this error:

dracut warning: Boot has failed. To debug this issue add "rdshell" to the
kernel command line.
Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!
Pid: 1, comm: init Not tainted #1
Call Trace:

Is my client processor supported? Or any configuration issue? I searched
the net but most people seemed to have path errors...but here it seems that
the client is getting the kenrel through tftp or whatever mechanism is used
here....only the kernel or settings are causing kernel panic.

I am hoping to utilize 12-13 old PIII 550 Mhz machines....kindly help.

With best regards & thanks.
