[nSLUG] difficulty with ltsp

What it will be looking for is a kernel image file
located here:

/tftpboot/lts/2.6.9-ltsp-3/bzImage-2.6.9-ltsp-3

Do you have such a thing?  If so, run 'file' command on
it to confirm it is a kernel image.  My file command
reports: "x86 boot sector"

There is another possibility.  If your DHCP server isn't
running rarp, but there is another server on the network
running rarp and tftp, then it will be looking for files
on the second machine.  See this posting I made
to nslug awhile ago where I took advantage of this.

Hope this helps...
