sorry to take so long to answer, with the help of castaway on the  
forum.libranet.com I have managed to get a few things fixed but not running.

The Thinkpad BIOS was not setup properly, part of my dhcp.conf was 
pointing in every direction but the right direction.

This is the boot screen on the Thinkpad
client MAC address:00 D0 59 DA 29 61 GUID:
Client IP 192.168.0.101 Mask 255.255.255.0 DHCP IP 192.168.0.100 Gateway 
IP: 192.168.0.1

Prelinux 2.13 2004-12-14
UNDI data segment at: 000938c0
UNDI data segment size: 94b0
UNDI code segment at: 0009cd70
UNDI code segment size: 2050
PXE entry point found(we hope) at 9CD7:0106
My IP address seems to be C0A80002 192.168.0.101
ip=192.168.0.101:0.0.0.0.:192.168.0.1:254:255.255.255.0

Could not find kernel image: linux
boot:
it stops at boot not being able to find the kernel image linux


/tftpboot/lts/2.6.9-ltsp-3/pxelinux.cfg looks so:
prompt 0
label linux
  kernel bzImage-2.6.9-ltsp-3
  append init=/linuxrc rw root=/dev/ram0 initrd=initrd-2.6.9-ltsp-3.gz
