Could it be a path error? The client machine is getting kernel
panic....this means it is getting the kernel through tftp or whatever
method pxe uses...

On the server machine? Unfortunately, its an existing server with spare
capacity...can't reinstall it...but can create a virtual machine with
ubuntu.....but I assumed that since I did not know anything about
ltsp/pxe/tftp toolset....it would be more difficult to setup the ltsp
server in a virtual machine.
