Re: Alix thin client doesn't boot with Lenny

I have not tested, but I expect this change to work.  Modify
/var/lib/tftpboot/debian-edu/ltsp-diskless.cfg, which originially have
this content:

LABEL ltsp-diskless
        MENU    LABEL  LTSP ^diskless workstation
        KERNEL ltsp/i386/vmlinuz
        APPEND initrd=ltsp/i386/initrd.img nfsroot=/opt/ltsp/i386 boot=nfs ro quiet 3

Change the nfsroot variable to use ltspserver:/opt/ltsp/i386, like

        APPEND initrd=ltsp/i386/initrd.img nfsroot=ltspserver:/opt/ltsp/i386 boot=nfs ro quiet 3

This assume the main-server was installed as a combined server, making
the LTSP kernel and initrd present on the disk.  If the files are not
present, you need to copy them to the main server (or do a much more
complex setup with PXE handover to the diskless workstation server,
which I will not try to describe here).

Happy hacking,
Petter Reinholdtsen
