This works for the thin clients but not for the stateless workstations.
On my system starting a machine connected to subnet, without
this declaration, results in looping:
	Begin: Retrying nfs mount ...
	...<some correct network configuration from DHCP>...
	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
work around.
Would it be appropriate to file a bug against ltsp-update-kernels in this
