    Sorry to ask in English, since my German is good but not excellent. I am trying to install this OSS 2.1 to be able to have basic thin client access PXE boot access to the server. I have tried to set it up by student, mac address, room etc. but the access always stops with something like "can't mount VFS ....on root 1:00" . If someone could be so kind as to help me with X-client thin client log on, I would be VERY appreciative. I am in Jamaica doing computer volunteer work and hopefully can get this going in 2 computer labs in my area here by September.
    Thank YOU!
    Greg

    Hi Greg,

    we have a working Terminal Server. Here comes a very short howto ....

    1.) YOU need a working OSS
    2.) copy the installations files (SUSE 10.x to /srv/tftp/akt/CD1) manual (version 6) Page 160
    3.) copy kernel and initrd from the installation-source to /srv/tftp
    4.) boot the future Terminal Server via PXE and select => Terminalserver Autoinstallation
    5.) register the TS to the OSS (dns entry terminalserver IP+MAC adress) manual page 170
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    6.) boot the diskless client via PXE

    greets from Germany Frank
