there is no image in feisty, so there would be nothing to update :)
(and in fact that command doesnt exists there)

ltsp-update-image creates a new squashfs image from the contents
of /opt/ltsp/i386 the image is the actual rootfs so if you make changes
there and want them in the image (read in the actually running client
system) you need to update the image contents.

since that gets very annoying to wait for minutes if you only want to
try out a change of a config value, gutsy has a function in the
initramfs that checks if lts.conf sits in the tftp root, if thats the
case it downloads it and copies it over the one in the mounted client
root before booting.

so if you want to go on in gutsy with using /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/lts.conf
you are free to do so. it will be used as long as there is no file
in /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/lts.conf

i'm working on some gui tools for hardy that will make all this easier
and you shouldnt have to care for file locations with it anymore :)
