Packages are available for LTSP, including one for the LTSP NFS root
itself.  I don't recall if these are available within Debian proper; I
think I downloaded most of them from elsewhere (they were binary only,
for starters).  I'm not particularly satisfied with the packaging
approach used, since I would much prefer to be able to manage the
contents of the NFS root directly with dpkg.  However, running
debootstrap in a postinst gave me problems when I told it to *not* use
the noninteractive debconf frontend...  I would rather like to be able
to configure the packages being installed in the chroot... :)

I haven't poked at it much in a while, but if there's interest, I can
gather up my working directory and post it somewhere for others to hack
