I should say that this will make the change for all thin clients.  If you'd
just like to make it for a single thin client with MAC address
00:1A:A0:0A:AF:BE, then do:

	cd /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/pxelinux.cfg/
	sudo cp default 01-00-1a-a0-0a-af-Be

and edit 01-00-1a-a0-0a-af-Be to your linking.  Note that the filename is
very sensitive, to work it out:

1. take machine mac address and lower case all letters
2. change all colons to hyphens
3. prefix the whole address with "01-"
