Light terminal not booting from dkt

The light terminal does not boot from diskette

I have set an experimental mini-web for Skolelinux with:
- a router  
      (universal IP on the outside eth0;   on the inside eth1)
- a hub  for the 10.0.2.zzz subnet
- a master server MS
- a workstation WS.

- a light terminal server

Here is the ifconfig of the  light terminal server
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:90:27:30:A7:13
          inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:

and now I want the light terminal to boot from a diskette
connected by a cross-over (twisted) cable to
the light terminal server,
but I can't: It stays forever with the monitor stating

000021.0000 done
ROM segment 0x0800 length 0x4000 reloc 0x9400

Ethernet addr: 00:A0:C9:2F:49:C0
Searching for server (DHCP)...

I have gotten the eb-5.0.7-eepro100.lzdsk
ROM image on the boot diskette. And I think that this is the
right one for the NIC.

I am pretty sure that the hardware, connections, hub, etc are not
at fault. Because after failing to boot as a light- terminal Skolelinux
from the diskette I have succeeded in installing a normal stable Debian
from the three diskettes (boot, root, net-drivers) and from the
Internet. It connects through the light-terminal server
(with a twistec cable, exactly the same as before)
and here is what its ifconfig says after booting

eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:A0:C9:2F:49:C0

The machine has been allocated the name ltsp253 by the
light-terminal server

And here is what the dmesg says at the intended light-terminal
after booting with the regular stable Debian

Does anyone have a suggestion about what I can do?

        Thank you for your help.
