I think I have the solution - although I did not do very much: I ran
first "sudo update-modules" and then I did "sudo ltsp-update-image". and
although I did not change anything it now works ok and clients can boot
from the installation.

actually I had seen a tip to include the network card in the modules
file. that's what brought me to running "update-modules". maybe that is
actually a bug in the distribution, because it does not work at a
certain point.
