Hello Tom...;)

 the errors i can see are as follows.....

Feb 24 00:44:23 linuxfreak dhcpd: DHCPDISCOVER from 00:00:24:c0:aa:38
via eth0
Feb 24 00:44:23 linuxfreak dhcpd: DHCPOFFER on to
00:00:24:c0:aa:38 via eth0
Feb 24 00:44:26 linuxfreak dhcpd: DHCPREQUEST for (
from 00:00:24:c0:aa:38 via eth0
Feb 24 00:44:26 linuxfreak dhcpd: DHCPACK on to
00:00:24:c0:aa:38 via eth0
Feb 23 19:14:26 linuxfreak in.tftpd[4194]: tftp: client does not accept

 Which clearly state that it seems to be an issue either with the way i
have configured DHCP-TFTP-NFS. Right...???? Or is it an implementation
issue with RH8.0 and tftp-dhcp..???

 Also....my /tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/default file is as follows :

SERIAL 0 19200
DEFAULT linux console=ttyS0,19200n81 root=/dev/nfsd
nfsroot= panic=10

 I seriously fail to understand where i am going wrong. What is it that
i a overlooking..??? 

 Any pointers on the same will be highly appreciated fellas.
