-You can set boot parameters for each thin client in lts.conf, located in /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386 (or whatever your arch is).  You'll have to create the file, but there's an example in /opt/ltsp/i386/usr/share/doc/ltsp-client-core/examples.  Any parameters you want to pass to all thin clients can go in the [default] section.  Individual thin clients can be identified by mac address.  Documentation for the parameters can be found here  [[http://softlayer.dl.sourceforge.net/project/ltsp/Docs-Admin-Guide/LTSPManual.pdf]] in chapters 8, 9, & 10.  You can also use the LIKE keyword to create a shortcut for several parameters, to keep your rules tidy.  Here's a sample from mine:+You can set boot parameters for each thin client in lts.conf, located in /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386 (or whatever your arch is).  You'll have to create the file, but there's an example in /opt/ltsp/i386/usr/share/doc/ltsp-client-core/examples.  Any parameters you want to pass to all thin clients can go in the [Default] section.  Individual thin clients can be identified by mac address.  Documentation for the parameters can be found here  [[http://softlayer.dl.sourceforge.net/project/ltsp/Docs-Admin-Guide/LTSPManual.pdf]] in chapters 8, 9, & 10.  You can also use the LIKE keyword to create a shortcut for several parameters, to keep your rules tidy.  Here's a sample from mine:

-For autologin, you **must** set LDM_AUTOLOGIN to True, and you need to define LDM_USERNAME and LDM_PASSWORD.  I have some Intel Atom-based thin clients, and they won't boot unless "noapic" and "acpi=off" are set as boot parameters, so I have that in the Atom_tc shortcut.  First try booting your thin clients without any boot parameters, and tweak the settings if needed.+For autologin, you **must** set LDM_AUTOLOGIN to True, and you need to define LDM_USERNAME and LDM_PASSWORD.  I have some Intel Atom-based thin clients, and they won't boot unless "noapic" and "acpi=off" are set as boot parameters, so I have that in the Atom_tc shortcut.  First try booting your thin clients without any boot parameters, and tweak the settings if needed.  Also, I set the default session to blackbox for OPAC accounts with LDM_SESSION.  More on that below.
