Stop the LTSP DHCP server to avoid network problems:
sudo /etc/init.d/dhcp3 stop

Configure your old DHCP server to point to your LTSP server for those
clients requesting a PXE boot. It doesn't have to be a linux sever. On
a Microsoft DHCP server you would add options 60, 66, and 67 for that
subnet range as shown here:

This site has good instructions for LTSP5 on Ubuntu 8.04 and 8.10:

I have successfully set up Edubuntu LTSP this way with a Cisco router
acting as the DHCP server. Cheers.
