The dhcp server is first to hand out an IP to the client and also
point towards the server where it is to get boot files. (tftp server)

One subnet should have only one dhcp master. So either you create
another subnet or use existing dhcp server to hand out IP's and also
point to tftp server (LTSP server)

PS: I know most of people do not follow email niceties (mostly they
are not aware) but if you follow bottom post/in-line post style of
email conversations it becomes a whole lot easier to carry on
meaningful dialogue and you can snip out what is not meaningful too.
Most people just hit reply button and top post leaving prior message
appended uselessly at bottom. See if you can adopt this style and
persuade others. In case you are already doing this ..... great,
spread the message.
