Welcome to LQ. Please provide more details about your equipment, which distro you are using, what error messages you are getting, etc. The more details you provide the better. -- J.W.

I haven't upgraded my server to k12ltsp 4.10 yet and it has some features which the older versions don't have. Noteably the ltspadmin tool.

Here's a nice article I found which seems to explain things quite well.

In a nutshell, you run the command: ltspadmin ( at the server )
Install / Update LTSP Packages
( retrieving list of packages from .... )
[ I ] ltstp_localdev ## Select Captial eye ( I ) to install this
Q ## To quit
Ready to install / update the selected LTSP packages ( y/n ) y

Quit the admin program when done.

Edit the file /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/lts.conf to add these lines if they aren't already there ...
LOCAL_DEVICE_01 =/dev/hdc:cdrom
LOCAL_DEVICE_02 =/dev/fd0:floppy

chkconfig autofs --level 5 on

Also, edit the /etc/auto.master and /etc/auto.misc files. I'll just quote the article on that part.
On my system, you need to edit /etc/auto.master to look like the following:
# /etc/auto.master
/misc /etc/auto.misc --timeout=60

Then, you'll need to add the following lines to your /etc/auto.misc file:

ws001cd -fstype=smbfs,workgroup=LTSP,guest ://ws001/cdrom
ws001fl -fstype=smbfs,workgroup=LTSP,fmask=666,dmask=777,guest,username=nobody,rw ://ws001/floppy
Kinda makes me want to get at and upgrade the server but I was holding out for the FC3 version when it comes.
