ah, yes, sorry for the typo's.

you still need to run ltsp-update-kernels after that, to get the tftpboot
directory populated server side. so the complete instructions:
# step 1: ensure boot=nfs in BOOTPROMPT_OPTS
# for example: BOOTPROMPT_OPTS="quiet splash boot=nfs"
# step 2: run update-kernels script in the chroot
chroot /opt/ltsp/i386 /usr/share/ltsp/update-kernels
# step 3: run ltsp-update-kernels on the server

that's because of the previous step you took, but you shouldn't need to edit
/etc/ltsp/ltsp-update-kernels.conf. i should have mentioned that that's
deprecated, as you can have multiple LTSP chroots on a single server, possibly
different architectures, each with different boot options- so a single source
for those options is a bad idea. it also may not even work correctly anymore.
p.s. please do not CC me, just send to the list. thanks!
