Actually, I forgot to mention that I had to update /etc/exports with

  opt/ltsp       *(ro,no_root_squash,async,insecure)

and restart nfs-kernel-server to get the client booting.

Should the client use sdm or ldm?  The ldm start script need this
patch to limp along with 2.4 kernels.

I still have not gotten X starting at boot time, but am working on it.
I installed xdebconfigurator on sarge and enabled it to regenerate the
X config at boot time.

  echo 'ENABLE_AT_BOOT=true' >> /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/default/xdebconfigurator
