[K12OSN] Re: Problem with IBM Netvista P3/1GHz as LTSP Client



Part 2:  I got PXE booting to start.  I think the installed NIC in the
Netvista was not pxe-compliant, so I put in a 3Com 3C905-TXPXE nic and
it started the boot process, but hangs at "Running dhcpd on port 67."

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
