My dhcpd.conf from Devil-Linux was:
   host work2 {
      hardware ethernet 00:e0:4c:b4:43:12;
      fixed-address 192.168.0.4;
      filename "lts/vmlinuz-2.4.26-ltsp-2";
      server-name "192.168.0.2";
      next-server 192.168.0.2;
      option tftp-server-name   "192.168.0.2";
      option root-path          "192.168.0.2:/opt/ltsp-4.1/i386";
   }

So: - nextserver        OK
    - filename          OK
    - option root-path  NOK

I think 'server-name' and also, 'option tftp-server-name' are not needed.

How can I tell to the specified nic, where to look for the 'root-path' ?
