If the problem coincides with firestarter being installed, it seems likely
that firewall rules are in place stopping some aspects of the thin client
boot process (eg tftp, nbd, etc.).

Could you give us the output of the following command:

	sudo iptables --list

Presumably some remnant of the package is still causing issues.  Looking at
the contents of the firestarter package, are any of these files still
present on the system?
