	Well spotted, thanks. I've committed the your fix to CVS. Dave Malcolm
is going to post details later on how to get anoncvs access to the
latest code.

	The base NFS path is store in the statelessServer LDAP object. See
stateless-schema.txt for more details. To that base NFS path we append
the configuration and snapshot names.

	So the example is:

  dn: cn=server1.company.com,dc=servers,dc=stateless,ou=services,$(LDAP_BASE_DN)
  objectClass: statelessServer
  cn: server1.company.com
  statelessNfsPath: /srv/stateless/snapshots

	and

  dn: statelessConfigurationName=artist-workstation,dc=stateless,ou=services,$(LDAP_BASE_DN)
  objectClass: statelessConfiguration
  statelessConfigurationName: artist-workstation
  statelessDefaultSnapshotName: artist-workstation-1

	would mean that the NFS path used in the generated pxelinux
configuration would be

  server1.company.com:/srv/stateless/snapshots/artist-workstation/artist-workstation-1

Thanks much,
Mark.
