I tested LTSP 5 in fedora 8 using vmware server 1.0.4 build-56528.
There are certain thing that is needed to be taken care off .
By default a bridging in configured between your ethernet card and vmware which is known as virbr0 . Now as most internet connection are served over dhcp, so there are chances of both dhcp server getiing mixed and result is this error
No root path received
no option root-path specified in your dhcpd.conf file
may be multiple dhcp server configured
A solution to this problem is to create a host only network configuration . This is same as configuring a network on a server with two NIC’s. On for internet and other for serving dhcp to clients.
in order to do so run vmware-config.pl as root
Now i am just adding the portion needed to configure a host only networking
