Just installed i386 preview release. Following observations so far:
1. No default for IP address. I chose 192.168.1.254 to fit into my
2. Prompt to configure the dhcpd.conf file specifies the /etc/dhcp3/
directory, but this should be /etc/ltsp/ (as far as I can see).
3. Base system configuration gave an error saying "One or more packages
failed to install". The supplied dhcpd.conf file (in /etc/ltsp/) defines
a range for a subnet on 192.168.0.0. If the server's IP address is not
on this subnet, then the dhcp server fails to start, and
ltsp-server-standalone can't get configured. I edited the conf file, ran
"dpkg --configure ltsp-server-standalone" and it now seems to work.
4. Minor stuff: During startup, "Setting up general console font" fails,
and reverts to text-mode. Also, DHCP info might be daunting for
semi-technical users (eg specifying network interfaces, instruction to
edit the dhcpd.conf file, warning about default being non-authoritative
I'll do some more testing tomorrow...
