LTSP falling back to initramfs (Wolfgang Bogenrieder), additional

blame on me, with <ALT><CTRL> F1 I got debug output, debugging isn't
further the problem.

I got the output


rootserver: rootpath: /opt/ltsp/i386
filename: /ltsp/i386/nbi.img
Error: Connect: Connection refused
mount /rofs on /root/rofs failed
.. (further mount errors, then)
Target filesystem doesn't have /sbin/init

Isn't nbi.img characteristic for etherboot, instead of PXE ? But,
loading of prelinux.0 long time passed, even linux kernel loaded ! So
what's going on ?
