Leopard Intel server and PPC client

My deploystudio netinstall image (10.5.1 universal) works fine on a ppc server with Leopard. But if I put the same image on a Mac pro also with  10.5.1 server I can't boot my iMac G4. It get's an IP-Adress from the server but then the world icon just blinks for an eternity and then starts up from the internal hd. I can't find anymore info in the netboot-logs except for the server giving the client 3 times the ip-address. I was able to reproduce this error on two machines.

Anyone having the same problem???

Re: Leopard Intel server and PPC client

First you might change the /etc/bootp.plist threshold property to 0 instead of 10 on your server. It will remove the 10s delay for the DHCP server to offer its configuration.
Then, double clic on the netboot set in Server Admin to check if your G4 computer model is not filtered.

Thank you for your superfast answer. I will give it a try on Friday and report back.

The change of the threshold solved the problem. Thank you!

The weird thing is, that on a 10.5.1 server installed on PPC-Hardware the threshold is 0 when freshly setup. I don't get it!
