I've spent 20 hours debuging this before I managed to resolve it.

I first did a complete reinstall of both TJENER and the LTSP server. Then I 
added the LTSP server to the setup using LWAT. I also put the LTSP server into  
the "ltsp-server-hosts" group.

I'm not sure what exactly did it, but I did add one diskless workstation using 
LWAT. Also I rebooted the LTSP server.

As a side note. Afther the first install the home folders were never created 
for any user that I added to the system.

So as far as I can see, either one have to add the LTSP server and/or add the 
LTSP server to the right group. An one must asure that ther actually is 
created home folders for users.
