Smile Problem with Language on LTSP client on Ubuntu 9.04

Dear all,

I am testing LTSP on Ubuntu Server 9.04 - 64-bit + ubuntu desktop 9.04
on a HP XW4600 workstation with 2GB RAM.

dpkg -l | grep ltsp
ii ltsp-server 5.1.65-0ubuntu2
Basic LTSP server environment
ii ltsp-server-standalone 5.1.65-0ubuntu2
Complete LTSP server environment
ii ltspfs 0.5.10-0ubuntu1
Fuse based remote filesystem for LTSP thin c

After installing LTSP, i couldnot find lts.conf file under
/var/lib/tftboot/ltsp/i386/ directory, instead it was in
/opt/ltsp/i386/usr/share/doc/ltsp-client-core/examples/lts.conf and

The lts.conf file under /var directory just Donot use this file, it
has been moved to /var/lib/tftboot/ltsp/i386/ . but its not there or i
guess i have to create it.I copied the lts.conf file from
/opt/ltsp/i386/usr/share/doc/ltsp-client-core/examples/ to
/var/lib/tftboot/ltsp/i386/ and it looks something like this.

# Global defaults for all clients
# if you refer to the local server, just use the
# "server" keyword as value
# see lts_parameters.txt for valid values

The ltsp client boots, but the language is in German So, i commented the
#XKBLAYOUT=de to disable the option and rebooted the client but i am
getting the same thing. Also, the client takes more time to boot than

can anybody help me

I figured this out. I configured XKBLAYOUT=en option in lts.conf file. It didn't work in the beginning, but after a couple of reboots it did! But, i am facing the following problems.

I am having problems mounting a 80GB NTFS USB drive on LTSP client.But it mounts on the server without any problems.

Also, if i plug in any USB drive on the server, this comes up in all the LTSP clients and they are in write mode which means they can view and change the contents of the drive! how can i stop this from appearing in all the LTSP client machines. I removed the "Access external storage devices automatically" in User Privileges but it still appears.

And, the LTSP client boots really slow, it takes more than a minute which was not the case with earlier version of LTSP and hardy. Infact, the server with Samba, LTSP, DHCP boots faster.
