Are you getting any messages in /var/log/messages on your tftp server that indicate that the client is trying to download the file? Usually tftpd puts out a line like: Dec 9 02:04:21 mcw tftpd: tftpd: trying to get file: /tftpboot/vmlinuz.ntulip Followed by a line like: Dec 9 02:04:46 mcw mountd: authenticated mount request from ws006.entity.com:800 Another debugging technique if you're able to be at the console of the server machine is to use tcpdump to monitor the conversation. For example /usr/sbin/tcpdump -n | grep 192.168.5.23 to see traffic to and from the particular client. You need to be root to do this, but if you're setting up dhcpd, you evidently are. What kind of ethernet card are you using, btw? Regards, Marty --- Name: Martin D. Connor US Mail: Entity Cyber, Inc.; P.O.
