..."Do not use the tools ltspadm and ltspcfg with this implementation of
LTSP, it will for sure ruin the ltsp setup !!!"...

ogra at edubuntu:~$ apt-cache show ltsp-client|grep -A5 Description
Description: LTSP client environment
 The scripts needed to configure and boot an LTSP client.
 DO NOT install this package on a regular machine, it is intended only
 for installation inside a LTSP client filesystem.
Bugs: mailto:ubuntu-users at

to install an ubuntu ltsp server clean up your system from the breakage
you produced before and copy and paste the following code:

sudo apt-get install ltsp-server-standalone && sudo ltsp-build-client 

now edit /etc/ltsp/dhcpd.conf to match the static interface you will use
for the thin client network and run:

sudo /etc/init.d/dhcp3-server restart

... now boot a client and have fun :)
