ThinStation - multiple boot images
It has come time for me to move our 2k3 terminal server farm over to 2k8.
This is fine with our HP t5735 thin clients, as I just need to update the image to ThinPro and set them up with the new RDP client (ie. rdesktop 1.6 rather than Citrix ICA).
However, we have a bunch of machines which use ThinStation.
Because this is going to be a progressive changeover, I want to run the 2 systems side by side, but due to it being served via PXE/TFTPd, I am finding myself limited.
How do I get 2 thinstation images to be served? The old one using citrix and the new one using rdesktop?
As it stands, I seem to be forced to use a single image, and I cannot for the life of me get the thinstation.conf-<MAC> files to be picked up.

if your thinstation.hosts file looks like this
you can set individual config files for each machine:
the thinstation.conf-* is just a copy of thinstation.conf with the different settings.

I don't use a hosts file. I just have thinstation.conf-<MAC> directly addressing the machine.

theoretically, that should work. but if not try the hosts file and then by machine name.
