Default LTSP Thin Client Problem

hi, all. thanks for the help that allowed me to construct the boot cds based on my thin client's NIC - i think i got them to work.

however, i now have a problem - i'm not able to get an ip address.

one computer hangs up with...

"Searching for server (DHCP) .... No IP Address" ("No IP Address" just repeats on a new line from there)

Another computer hangs with...

"Probing PCI NIC
Valid link not established" (which keeps repeating).

i unplugged my switch too see if it needed resetting, the problem remained.

does this sound like a switch issue?

can i test to make sure dhcp is working on my fresh edubuntu install?

is my boot cd really working and how can i verify it?

any other troubleshooting guidance is greatly appreciated.

tia...

a. Put your laptop on that network and let it get it's ip with
dhcp-client. If your dhcp-server is ok in your ltsp-server, it gets ip.

b. You can also check log-file for dhcp-server, there are lines for leases.

Something like this (my home test environment for Ubuntu 7.10):

asmok@ubuntu:~$ cat /var/log/daemon.log | grep dhcp

Feb 7 15:04:18 ubuntu dhcpd: DHCPDISCOVER from 00:20:ed:bc:13:20 via eth0
Feb 7 15:04:19 ubuntu dhcpd: DHCPOFFER on 192.168.1.250 to
00:20:ed:bc:13:20 via eth0
Feb 7 15:04:20 ubuntu dhcpd: DHCPREQUEST for 192.168.1.250
(192.168.1.101) from 00:20:ed:bc:13:20 via eth0
Feb 7 15:04:20 ubuntu dhcpd: DHCPACK on 192.168.1.250 to
00:20:ed:bc:13:20 via eth0

Best Regards Asmo Koskinen.
