An ARP timeout suggests (I think) that having received the DHCP response,
an ARP request (an ARP request looks up mac address corresponding to the
TFTP server by broadcasting a "who-has" message) was sent and didn't get a
reply, which usually suggests the server it's trying to get to isn't

You're obviously on the network (the dhcp worked), so that's not the
reason.  Is it possible the next-server directive is set wrong in
/etc/ltsp/dhcpd.conf?  I recall I might have had a problem like this on
gutsy and I see I have the line:


which is the ip address of my server,  You might look at that.
