for me it doesn't work with m0n0wall.
I need that 'root-path' parameter.

So i took another machine, the one that also act as the ltsp-server as a second
dhcp-server.

Downsite, sometimes i get wierd things when booting up with knoppix on one of my
home-pc's.

Sorry, i don't have en example anymore, deleted ...
I think i putted it in front, not in the staticmap-section ???

PS, next time mail to the list, others can get help out of it!
