Thanks for your feedback.
I got a little bit misunderstood, but that doesn't matter.
I got a Linux disti running on that machine (SuSE) so DHCP and the other
stuff would be no problem.
The other point is, that I got another HDD which contains AIX 5L with
Linux-tools. This would be the right choice for your solution.
Anyway, I am bloody busy and need a demo-machine on Tuesday. An i386
machine is set up already, but I'll try it quickly on the RS with Linux.
If ist not working after one hour I'll try it in about 10 days.
I'll keep you all up-to-date.

PS: Did anyone make some experience with about 15 clients running on a
single-processor machine (Athlon 1200) which is also router, firewall,
file- and mailserver? Can one still work on the "server" while users are

I posted a message a while back, asking about using an
RS/6000 as an LTSP server and the feedback was good -
basically that it would work, but that noone had tested
The simplest implementation would be to get it working
on an Intel box, then copy /opt/ltsp, /tftpboot, /etc/dhcpd.conf,
/etc/exports and any other necessary
files to the RS/6000 (the /etc/dhcpd.conf file may
need some tweaking).
You would have to get dhcp from ISC (www.ics.org) and
enable dhcpd, tftp and nfs similar as was done on the
Intel box. You'd have to setup X11 on the RS/6000 to
support XDMCP sessions, and then all should work.
I'd like to hear how this works out, since I may be
doing the same myself soon.
