This works for the thin clients but not for the stateless workstations.
On my system starting a machine connected to 10.0.2.0/23 subnet, without
this declaration, results in looping:
Begin: Retrying nfs mount ...
...<some correct network configuration from DHCP 10.0.2.2>...
Begin: Running /scripts/nfs-premount ...
nfsmount: need a path
Begin: Retrying nfs mount ... etc.
After (or while?) loading the kernel (modules?).
Having "nfsroot=/opt/ltsp/i386" In
"/var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/pxelinux.cfg/default" solves that.
Therefore it's reasonable to avoid overwriting this file or find another
Would it be appropriate to file a bug against ltsp-update-kernels in this
