Thanks to the RH team for fixing the
above non-bootable kernel!

Note: The problem of the boot time GUI is not resolved
and it appears to be related to the latest xorg updates
and no fixes are known at this time, AFAIK.

For those of you who have encountered the unbootable
kernel with the "nfs root target" message,  here is what
you need to do:

Using your latest working bootable kernel:
===============================
1) rpm -e ltsp-client (or yum remove ltsp-client)
2) mkinitrd -f /boot/initrd-<VERSION>.img <VERSION>

I have tested the above with kernel versions:
2.6.26.3-29.f9.i686
2.6.26.5-45.fc9.i686

.... and the problems disappears!

Note: I did not consciously install ltsp-client and
this must have been included in the updates AFTER
kernel-2.6.25.14-108.f9.i686.  Strangely, the problem
appeared only with kernels above: 2.6.25.14-108.f9.i686
which was installed/updated AFTER 2.6.25.14-108.f9.i686.
My guess is that initrd was (re)built when ltsp-client was
installed just before the new kernels were added.

Cheers!
Dan
