Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have a test lab where I was able to successfully install k12linux and have it working as an ltsp server for thin clients.
I would like to move that server to my live network. I read many forum posts and howto's on how to configure my k12linux to push dhcp to the next server, the windows 2003 dhcp server, and then for the windows 2003 dhcp server to give the tftp info to the thin client to contact the k12linux server.
I have had no luck mixing the k12linux server and windows 2003 dhcp server.
Eth1(live network, internet) - 172.16.0.98 255.255.255.0
Eth0 - bridged to ltspbr0
ltspbr0 - 172.31.100.254 255.255.255.0
Windows 2003 Dhcp Server
Eth0(live network, internet) - 172.16.0.5 255.255.255.0
On the 2003 dhcp server, I changed the following options in the dhcp scope:
017 Root Path : /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386
066 Boot Server Host Name : 172.31.100.254 (also tried 172.16.0.98)
1. Do I need to install a tftp server on my 2003 dhcp server? (don't think it's needed)
2. Where can I find details about scope option 211?
