Does anyone know how to configure a Linux server to become a LTSP server.
I have tried to look at the website but i do not understand the instructions that they offer to me.
Does anyone have simplified instructions on how to set up the LTSP server.

I worked with a teacher last year on setting up a LTSP network, it worked properly but then we had to scrap it because the hardware failed.

If I can I'll try and see if I can get the notes on how he did it and post it.

This may be an obvious question, but have you tried
http://www.ltsp.org/
yet?

Cheers.

What error do you get while you are trying which instruction? What instruction don't you understand? The instructions seem clear enough to me although I've never set up a LTSP server.

My experience is that it's easy to setup the server itself. It's setting up the clients to work with the server thats a bit harder.

The instructions seem pretty clear, you basically create a kernel for your terminals and usually through a tftp server you send it to the client which then boots off of it.

How far are you in setting up the server? And what do you need help on?
